The Bernie 2016 campaign delivered a National touring exhibition to Los Angeles, Austin, Boston & New York City from January to April 2016 called, The Art Of A Political Revolution: Artists For Bernie Sanders. The public show’s were free and open to the public.
Throughout his political career, Bernie Sanders has been a strong supporter of the arts. “You have my promise that as President, I will be an arts President,” Sanders said in a video recorded for the Arts Action Fund. “I will continue to advocate strongly for robust funding of the arts in our cities, schools and public spaces. Art is speech. Art is what life is about.”
Sen. Sanders’ political revolution is driving one of the most successful grassroots political campaigns of our time. As Sanders continues to force the debate on critical issues affecting all Americans, artists play a crucial role in allowing people to engage, learn and become inspired. Income inequality, climate change, racial justice, immigration and affordable education are among the issues that serve as the inspiration for these works, from both international and locally acclaimed artists included in the official showcase.
