Melting ice sculpture protests ‘fake news’ at US Capitol

Artist duo LigoranoReese melt a ton of ice spelling out the word “truth” in front of the US Capitol, in a poetic protest at the caustic state of politics in the era of “fake news” under President Donald Trump. “Truth Be Told” is the sixth sculpture in the Melted Away series launched in 2006 by Marshall Reese and Nora Ligorano, who are both 62 years old and have collaborated on art projects for nearly four decades.
