Last month I wrote about my Bernie Stardust drawing's adventures with The Art of a Political Revolution exhibition. This extraordinary show has continued its travels and grew until it ended up in New York, where it opened on Saturday to a crowd and some surprise guests: Bernie Sanders, fresh from his trip to the Vatican, his wife Jane, and a few other family members.
Imagine my delight when I found out that Ann J Lewis, a fellow exhibiting artist, happened to get this video at the exact moment of Bernie and his granddaughters looking at my drawing:
Participating in this exhibition has been such a gratifying experience already, and this managed to elevate it even further. As an artist who primarily works in the surreal and fantasy realms, I'm proud and happy to have been there from the start, drawing the one candidate who's managed to add a little magic and a lot of hope to American politics.
Today is the last day in New York, so if you're on the East Coast, I hope you're able to drop by. Details here.
