Kehinde Wiley Sculpture to be Unveiled in Times Square, New York, September 2019

Kehinde Wiley will unveil his first monumental public sculpture, Rumors of War, in Times Square, New York this September.  The work is the artist’s direct response to the ubiquitous Confederate sculptures that populate the United States, particularly in the South. Sitting astride a massive horse in a striking pose, Wiley’s young, African-American subject is dressed in urban streetwear. The sculpture will be permanently installed on the historic Arthur Boulevard in Richmond, at the entrance of the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts (VMFA), Virginia, USA.  For additional information, please visit
