The group behind an effort to bring a foot-tall sculpture of a naked woman to the National Mall says it is "looking to formalize litigation" after the National Park Service denied approval of the statue. In a letter to the group dated October 25, the National Park Service said aspects of the group's request "is likely to significantly damage the underlying turf" and "is likely to have an adverse effect on the aesthetics, including the identity of the area. The group has held an annual event on the National Mall that looks to marry art and activism by providing "space for arts, healing, culture, and activism to come together, mediated by radical inclusion, participation and self-expression," its website says. This year, the group had requested a permit to bring the sculpture, "R-Evolution," to the mall for the event, "to bring awareness to violence against women and the Equal Rights Amendment. Haferd, who managed the permitting process, said the National Park Service "spent a month reviewing before it gave written approval of the project in September" after the group provided various plans and requirements for its installation. The National Park Service also issued a statement on the matter, saying the request for the statue to remain up for 91 days and an accompanying temple for days, "is significantly in excess of the five-day time restriction set forth in the National Mall Turf Management Guidelines. In addition, the total height of the "R-Evolution" structure, which goes above feet when including its base, "introduces a visual element that would diminish the property's significant historic features by altering the setting and historic character of the National Mall landscape," the statement reads.
