Hope Manifested in the Mile High City

The Manifest Hope Gallery at the Democratic National Convention in Denver, CO this past August was the mecca of Obamaganda. From the About section on the website:
Art plays a pivotal role in creating cultural momentum. The Manifest Hope Gallery celebrates that role and shines a spotlight on artists across the nation who use their voices to amplify and motivate the grass roots movement surrounding the Obama Campaign. The Manifest Hope Gallery highlights the central themes of the progressive grass-roots movement- Hope Change, Progress, Unity and Patriotism.
The gallery featured art submitted from entrants all over the country and judged by a panel featuring none other than original Obamagandist Shepard Fairey who leant his print-made Obama portrait to the gallery's nameplate. Check out some of my favorites below or visit the Manifest Hope Online Gallery to see art and read more about it.
