DISCLAIMER: I'm the marketing director for the Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History (http://thewright.org) in Detroit, MI which is hosting this fabulous exhibit, but I'm writing as Dkos user #30,977 (I signed up the morning after Bush won reelection in 2004... talk about a political hangover). I'm a daily reader, but, admittedly, not much of a diary writer. But this was worth me raising my hand to (hopefully) get called on in Daily Kos class:
It's about this very cool art exhibition that just opened at The Wright Museum: Visions of Our 44th President.
From the museum's website (http://thewright.org/...):
A new exhibition will prove that it’s possible to see one man forty-four different ways.Follow me below for a few images:
Visions of Our 44th President, a groundbreaking, collective art exhibit, was created to honor and celebrate the significance of the first African American President of the United States, Barack Obama. Forty-four busts were created from a model that served as a blank canvas, giving each of forty-four contemporary artists from across the country free reign to creatively interpret this milestone in American history.
Check out the images and enjoy! And if you're in or anywhere near Detroit, please do stop in - the exhibit is free with museum admission ($8 adults, $5 seniors and youth), and the busts are even more incredible in person. I hope to see you there!
