UPDATE: According to a Walls Project spokesperson, the controversial sign was stolen from the library grounds, and it is unsure if the sign will return to the gallery.

A sign placed outside of the Jones Creek Library as part of a campaign from The Walls Project is turning some heads.

The sign depicts a silhouette of what appears to be a police officer pointing a gun at a crying child with the words “Police Brutality: STOP IT!” written to the side.

Library officials say the sign is part of an event involving 9 East Baton Rouge Parish schools, encouraging students to explore current events through signs. There are four more signs posted, which the library says represents the “voice of the students who created the work.”

The Walls Project says they partnered with local schools and art teachers to feature the student-artist murals, painted over old political campaign signs, for the project, called “#MyWall.”
