The marble sculpture "Civic Virtue Triumphant Over Unrighteousness" caused an uproar before it was even installed outside City Hall in New York City, in 1922. This uproar lasted for over 90 years. It is here presented for your viewing pleasure in about 20 minutes.  This script was commissioned by the Lennie Pierro Memorial Arts Foundation, and it resonates with current debates about Confederate monuments and the relationship between public art and the public.
