Inaugural Gleaning

Local DC artists Matt Sesow and Dana Ellyn used boards, gleaned from the inauguration parade bleachers, as a canvas for their latest works covering this historic event. Although their work is quite different in style and composition, they share a common love for dark political humor and bright vivid colors. Rather than dropping cash on matching Obama t-shirts or the coveted limited edition presedential ceramic plate collection, why not commemorate Obama's inauguration through the magic of recycled art? ("Aretha" & "Obama" by Dana Ellyn)
