There is an election this November 6th.
And it also happens to be one of the most important in U.S. history.

A word that is an act, a symbol, an object, a possession, a weapon, a wish. It is a super power.
On view will be new work by selected artists who have each created an artwork of the word “Vote”.

Voting is probably the single most important act performed by a citizen… (Read More)
