Art For Obama

http://www.manifesthope.com/ is a partner with http://www.moveon.org/ that recently held a contest to create works of art themed around Democratic Presidential nominee, Sen. Barack Obama. As they say, "Art plays a pivotal role in creating cultural momentum. The Manifest Hope Gallery celebrates that role and shines a spotlight on artists across the nation who use their voices to amplify and motivate the grass roots movement surrounding the Obama Campaign." I picked a few of my favorites, they definitely don't represent the scope of all contestents, I like funky art, not warm folky stuff... by the way, is Obama wearing an Andre the Giant/Obey lapel pin to the left here? Oh, and if you got time... a Bobby Campbell and/or Todd Purse original Obama would be righteous! Hint, hint...
