“Santa Barbara-based artist and philanthropist Morris Bear Squire created a giant sculptural piece of Obama with his Blackberry, which is now on view at 111 State Street in Santa Barbara, CA”… OK, Morris – I see Obama, but where is this blackberry that you speak of? Update: Amy Dozier sent in some photos with the phone. Thanks!
And from Clayton Singleton: “This acrylic painting on canvas was painted after seeing President Obama as Senator Obama on one of many Obama rallies in the battleground state of Virginia. I got to shake his hand and have my book signed at this particular event in Chesapeake, VA. cool guy.”
Alison Schuchs writes in: “I took this portrait I did to the Mall on January 19th, 2009. It was Martin Luther King, Jr’s Birthday and the day before the Inauguration. I had people write on the portrait their wishes and thoughts. So the portrait is a piece of history too from the Deep South. You can see the video on YouTube of people signing the artwork. ”
