While this is a visual arts blog, I have to state here that Barack Obama is my candidate... and it's for his Vision.
He uses his unique life experience,his intelligence,his heart and his voice to inspire, create, bring ideas and issues up for discussion, and to hopefully make things better.
I think these are all essential elements to art and art-making too.
As an addition, there's a feature on the NYTimes which has portraits of voters across America being interviewed about their choice of candidate: it's a great core sample of people who live in the USA and what is going on in our minds about hopes, priorities and values.
If you like faces (as I do) and hearing how individuals express themselves-- given a short window in which to do so-- about issues that face all of us, you will enjoy this media piece.
