We’re talking about “Fearless Girl,” the brainchild of Kristen Visbal.

Recently, “Fearless Girl” was moved from its spot opposite the iconic “Charging Bull” sculpture, due in part to the traffic hazard caused by crowds around her and the “Charging Bull.”

In this week’s Arts Playlist, Delaware Public Media’s Kelli Steele speaks with Visbal about the move and her work.
