POLITIKS///FIRST LOOK: “MANIFEST HOPE DC” ART SHOW RINGS IN OBAMA INAUGURATION
Just in time to celebrate President-Elect BARACK OBAMA's upcoming inauguration on January 20th, the SHEPARD FAIREY-organized MANIFEST HOPE DC art show (in collaboration with MoveOn.org) has opened its doors to the public in the nation's capitol. An extension of the original "Manifest Hope" show last year at the Democratic National Convention, this year's installment enjoys the distinction of celebrating a hard-won change instead of stating the case for it. Featuring original artwork by a diverse array of artists including Shepard Fairey, Tim Biskup, Tristan Eaton, Ron English, David Choe, Maya Hayuk, Andy Howell, Chris Pastras, HAZE, Travis Millard, House Industries, HVW8, Zoltron, JK5, Justin Hampton, Robbie Conal, and Sam Flores, the inclusive show is intended to reflect the grassroots movement that helped propel Obama to unheard of stratospheric heights.
