Obamaware update

The Obamaware auction raised $10,194 for the Obama/Biden campaign. Whilst I can't really get my head round the idea of the sums of money that are spent in the US election campaigns, and the fact that fundraising is totally ok, i'm still impressed that artists are devising such creative ways of raising funds and awareness.

One of the artists involved was Jeffry Mitchell, who appeals to me for the very obvious reason that he sometimes turns things gold, and he uses a lot of 'high art' imagery to create 'low art' objects.
