Political Art

I want to thank Deb from Out on the Limb and the indy-weblogs email list for alerting me to this great work -- it's called American Fundamentalists (Christ's Entry into Washington 2008), and it's by artist Joel Pelletier. It's modeled on an 1888 piece by James Ensor titled Christ's Entry into Brussells, 1889, and it's really an amazing piece of work. There are approximately one hundred current political and religious figures depicted, from the Bush family and prominent Republican Senators and Congressmen to the usual suspects in the Jesus Hates You, America crowd -- Falwell, Robertson, Dobson, Terry, et al.

It's available as a poster for purchase, and is also going on the road very soon (see the site for details). It is available for appearances at venues large and small, and should be seen by art lovers and disdainers of hypocrisy everywhere. Check it out, won't you?
