Denver student withdraws her art after police criticism

Poster depicted police officer with KKK hoodie pointing gun at black child
Viewers mill about the annual Denver Public Schools system’s best-of-city art show on display in the lobby of the Wellington Webb office building in downtown Denver on Friday. One piece of art in the display, which depicted a police officer wearing a KKK hood and pointing a gun at a black child in a white hoodie with his hands in the air, triggered a storm of controversy from the Denver police unions which ended when the painting was withdrawn from the exhibit by the artist, who is in 10th grade.
