Now, throw a shoe at George W. Bush for just $1!

London, Jan 6 (ANI): Since an Iraqi journalist hurled his footwear at George W Bush, portraits of the outgoing US president have become popular targets for demonstrators around the world and now a US art gallery has opened an exhibit with a “shoe throw” fundraiser.

For 1 dollar a throw, visitors can hurl shoes covered in red paint at a large picture of Mr Bush, reports the Telegraph.

City Councilor Eric Navickas who opened the MAda Shell Gallery with partner Amy Godard slathered a layer of red paint on the soles of sneakers, boots and sandals before people fired the footwear at an 8-foot image of Bush.

Godard said the exhibit is a “statement of solidarity” with Muntadhar al-Zeidi, the Iraqi journalist who was arrested after hurling two shoes at Bush in protest during a Baghdad news conference last month. (ANI)
