'F--k All You Rich People' Says Man Who Pulled Out Fake Penis During Art Event: Cops

Miami-Dade Corrections

Art is weird, you guys.

A New York subway performer was arrested in Miami, Florida, on Sunday while protesting Art Basel, a yearly international art show that features 300 galleries from around the world.

In a police report obtained by the Miami Herald, 27-year-old Kalan Sherrard was taking part in a demonstration against the wealthy. When officers attempted to move the agitators from the Miami Beach Convention Center, Sherrard allegedly resisted before pulling out a fake penis.

Police said Maria Valenzuela, 20, was also arrested when she attempted to jump on one of the officers dealing with Sherrard, who was also wrestling with police, according to the report.

"Fuck Art Basel, fuck all you rich people," police said Sherrard yelled.

In video taken by a bystander, Sherrard and Valenzuela can be seen resisting officers' attempts to restrain them.

"Get off of me you fucking pigs," Sherrard can be heard yelling in the video.

Sherrard is a self-described "nihilist subway performer," who has been featured in New York magazine.

On social media, Sherrard said it was his second time being arrested in less than a week.


Sherrard and Valenzula were both charged with disorderly conduct and resisting arrest without violence.
