Description
The word VOTE on yellow, red, orange ochre background. Small photographic image in center of O. The "Vote Series" is a group of paintings and prints that emphasize the vote. The artist created apathy on the part of many of our citizens. He was born in the south when the right to vote was denied to his family because of their race. "Many people...particularly in the south have made great sacrifices to assure the right to vote for all people, and the 'Voter Series' is intended to be a nonpartisan motivator and consciousness raiser for all citizens."
