CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) — The wraps are coming off an unusual art installation at the University of Virginia.

Called "Kings of Freedom," the graffiti artwork is on panels of the Berlin Wall. The artwork will make its debut Friday.

Portions of the wall were installed on the grounds last month as part of a U.Va. celebration commemorating the 1989 fall of the Berlin Wall. The panels are on loan to U.Va.

A ceremony attended by U.Va. President Teresa A. Sullivan will mark the opening.
