The National Rifle Association ( NRA ) has agreed to remove an image of the Millennium Park sculpture "The Bean" from a 2017 video, The Chicago Tribune reported.
Titled "The Violence of Lies," the videowith NRA spokeswoman and conservative commentator Dana Loeschuses a picture of the sculpture as Loesch speaks about former President Barack Obama.
Briitsh sculptor Anish Kapoor, who created "The Bean," had filed a copyright-infringement lawsuit against the NRA. "We are pleased to declare victory over the NRA. They have now complied with our demand to remove the unauthorized image of my sculpture Cloud Gate from their abhorrent video 'The Violence of Lies,' which seeks to promote fear, hostility and division in American society," Kapoor said in a statement.
