Rice says surge helps McCain, Obama

1_Chinese-forward.jpg In what could be easily be construed as the liberal clusterfuck of the 21st century, MoveOn is partnering with Shepard Fairey and Upper Playground to host a Pro-Obama (naturally) exhibit during the DNC. The "Manifest Hope Art Gallery" will open on Sunday, August 24 and run through Thursday, August 28. The 10,000 square foot venue will display work by both established an emerging artists. Additionally, the proponents of the candidate that can actually raise his arms above his head will hold an art contest and 30 submissions will be featured in an online gallery with the top 5 hung physically at the 'Hope' Gallery. We also hear that the show will include on site installations from the likes of Ron English and Sam Flores. The above image is from one of the artists featured in the show, who simply goes by the name Eddie. He's been pasting up this image around San Francisco of Obama with radiating lights and the word "Forward" in Chinese in part to highlight the often overlooked Asian voting bloc. He's also created versions in Spanish and plans on rolling out other languages too like Korean, Japanese, Russian, and Vietnamese. The piece itself was created with layers of paper, shellac, and then pasted into a lightbox. Detailed shots and images of the work in progress below.
