Artists for Obama 2012, an initiative of several distinguished American artists (Chuck Close, Frank Gehry, Jasper Johns, Bruce Nauman and Richard Serra to name some of the best-known) to aid Obama’s campaign for re-election. Here below Chris Burden‘s poetic screenprint Married (from Artists for Obama 2012 website).
