What was the moment you became radicalized?
About the speaker
Stilts Walker is an incognito public artist and criminal-at-large who currently creates artwork for the people of Charlottesville, VA. Walker’s primary medium is sausage—or, rather, large wheat-pasted prints of hot dogs that can be found on public walls throughout Charlottesville. Though it all started as a one-off inside joke among friends, Stilt’s Walker’s cartoon frankfurters eventually found their political voice and evolved to include leftist propaganda and social commentary. The weenies have been a street art staple in Charlottesville since 2019 and have been chronicled on Instagram at @stilts_walker
