The Daily Cougar news site has a nice little article on a recent art exhibit at the Houston Galleria. “Last weekend at the Houston Galleria, Red Bull premiered its free “Red Bull Art of Can” exhibit. The exhibit celebrates all things Red Bull and features 47 works of art… Sergio Aleman, an architectural industrial design major, created a Red Bull portrait of Barack Obama. Titled “Vote,” it consists of multiple layers of Red Bull chads.”
Ran across this caricature in Nick Leonard’s photostream. It’s not pretty. It’s not supportive. And it could easily be considered racist. So why are we featuring it here? Well it is a great example about how this campaign has affected the art community. Love him, or hate him – Obama has inspired people to create.
