GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KKCO) - A local artist says people may not like his latest work, but it's all about freedom of speech.
Paul Snover says he was commissioned by a Grand Junction man to design a billboard at Melody Lane and I–70B.
Snover says it depicts President Barack Obama as a terrorist, homosexual, bandito and gangster.
He says the man who paid him $500 for his work wants to remain anonymous but has a clear message, "He doesn't care for what Obama is doing for the country and wanted to get that across to the people of Grand Junction and possibly around the country."
There's no word on how long the billboard will stay up.
Businesses in the area are not associated with the billboard and it's privately owned.
