Dissent Is Patriotic
Photograph - Digital Print Of A Screen Printed Original
This piece was inspired by protesters during the 2008 Democratic National Convention in Denver, Co. and the creative censorship imposed by local law enforcement on artists and arts organizations. The original image was taken at a war protest during the DNC and I created this three color serigraph print using the same community arts facilities that police targeted.
However, earlier this year, The Denver Office of Cultural Affairs sponsored a new mural to be painted in its place as a way of promoting the use of murals throughout the city hoping to discourage "tagging." I appreciate the leadership that DOCA took in supporting local artists.
