Rep. William Lacy Clay, D-Mo., and other black lawmakers will hold a Tuesday event to rehang a painting that depicts police as pigs, just days after Rep. Duncan Hunter, R-Calif., took it down.

A top aide to Clay told the Washington Examiner Clay also plans to file a "complaint" with the U.S. Capitol Police against Hunter for removing the painting. Last week, Hunter removed a painting by high school student David Pulphus that shows police depicted as pigs in a standoff with protesters.

The painting won Clay's congressional art competition in May 2016, and is an ode to the protests in Ferguson, Mo., which falls in Clay's district. Other works of art produced by students are also hung in the Cannon Office Building tunnel.

Members of the Congressional Black Caucus will hold an event Tuesday morning to rehang the painting in the tunnel.
