November 4 - November 11, 2008
The Election Show is one of many concurrent exhibitions being hosted by galleries and museums throughout the U.S., and providing artists with the opportunity to address the high-keyed opinions, ideologies, and debate surrounding the Presidential election on November 2nd, 2004. Throughout its history, art has been a leading vehicle for expressing political thought. Artists such as Delacroix, Goya, Daumier, Thomas Nast, and Sue Coe have consistently taken advantage of art’s unique ability to convey and sway political opinion. The Election Show is a non-juried exhibition—all entries will be displayed and all viewpoints are welcome. There is no effort on the part of the organizers to present a fair and balanced view of sentiments concerning the upcoming election.
