Art of the Vote
Art of the Vote

“Art of the Vote” is a series of photographs which used civic engagement as its theme to record voter registration initiatives in the 2004 national election. Partnering with National Voice, a national voter registration initiative, over the summer, students created a series photographs which National Voice used as promotion on their website.

Exhibitions of the work were held at the Minneapolis College of Art and Design and the Minnesota Center for Book Arts. With assistance from the Minnesota Business Partnership, lawn signs were created and installed in community centers and public sites throughout the Twin Cities the weekend before the election.
