I Fought the Law by Olivia Locher


With her ongoing series ‘I Fought the Law’ Olivia Locher depicts America’s most unusual laws. Olivia creates scenes where her subject does exactly what’s prohibited by very unusual laws, that are partly still on the statute books. She says: “Using early pop art as inspiration, I intend to defy rules and regulations across all the remaining US states.”

In Tennessee hollow logs may not be sold.

In Maine it’s unlawful to tickle women under the chin with a feather duster.

In Utah no one may walk down the street carrying a paper bag containing a violin.

In Rhode Island it is illegal to wear transparent clothing.

In Arizona you may not have more than two dildos in a house.

In Delaware it’s illegal to wear pants that are “form-fitting”around the waist.

In Wisconsin it is illegal to serve apple pie in public restaurants without cheese.
