Socially Engaged Art

Stolen highlights racism and dirty politics in our nation’s senate and the lasting impact. Merrick Garland should currently be on the Supreme Court, but Mitch McConnell refused to allow the process for President Obama’s nominee to have a hearing or vote. Neil Gorsuch sits in a seat that was stolen through dirty politics.  The result will be felt for decades.
