The University of Alaska at Anchorage is displaying a painting of a nude Chris Evans, the actor who stars as Marvel’s Captain America, holding aloft the severed head of President Donald Trump, as a young ’60s-era Hillary Clinton clings to his leg.

Assistant professor Thomas Chung created the painting, KTTU-TV reported, and he says that he “spent days just weeping” after Trump was elected president. The assistant professor describes himself as a social artist who normally doesn’t deal in politics, but Trump’s election “bled into that.”

Originally, he was hesitant to submit the painting for a faculty art show, fearing that it would disturb some students. He decided to push forward regardless, hoping it would generate conversation:

Interesting note. . . I went to Google images to get a better picture and found several pictures of Trump beheadings.

Personally? I think it's in bad taste.

But if bad taste was illegal, we'd have jailed Michael Moore years ago.

Free speech!

Also, if interested. . . link to Google images of "Trump beheaded"

Beheaded President, sure, why not....Just don't dare to display the Ten Commandments, those are truly offensive!

It's good to see a university do something to promote free speech, free expression.

I wonder if they'd let Milo speak at the college.

Kinda ironic that Captain America is going to join Hydra in the next installment of the movie franchise. A few years from now the next painting depicts Captain America getting beheaded by Ironman.

Try to imagine the outrage if something similar was done when Obama was president and displayed in public.

It's nothing new.

Shameful.

Game of Thrones had GW's head on a pike.

Kingsman/ whatever I forget the name had Obama's head explode in it.

Trump is no different.

In the 21st century what passes for art is anything but.

Chris Evans wanted to beat up Richard Spencer after he punched Miss Hairy Muff. Chris Evans already picked his side.

Too bad i suck at drawing. I would send them a nice painting with Obamas head in a guillotine and Trump pulling the lever. Hillarys severed head already in a basket right in front of it for good measure.

I have to differ on this.

That's not Captain America. It's a homoerotic Chris Evans holding Trump's severed head. There really isn't anything I can see that links in Evans as Captain America except an onlookers knowledge of the role.

In fact, with the draping and positioning of the eagles behind him, he looks more like some kind of angelic figure.

To be fair, I Googled "Hillary beheaded" but found this instead.

The execution of the painting is lacking. Crappy, weak colors; poor symmetry; it looks like the birds, which one would think are supposed to be majestic, are giving Chris Evans wet willies.

0/10 would recommend.

Hilary was cut off in the op.

Shes at his feet.

Pantsuit and all.

That artist is a political hack, and is not very good.

Well you said it. Art falls under free speech so that makes this a non issue don't you think? Or is this supposed to be a rant?

A beheaded Trump is still smarter than the most brilliant liberal.

Not finding any art of Obama's severed head either. Lots of memes about how Obama reacted to people being beheaded though.

Be a real shame if Chris Evans sued the 'artist' for intellectual property theft.

A persons likeness can not be used without permission.
