I read a new story about this art today, and decided that as long as I was in town, I wanted to see it.
Quote from the artist, from the above linked article: English said he was born and raised in Illinois and is an Obama supporter. He said he wanted the image to serve as a springboard for conversation about Obama's candidacy. "I believe Obama will take up Lincoln's challenge of uniting the country," English wrote. "This is the most excited I've ever been about a presidential candidate and I'm looking for ways that I can contribute as an artist and a citizen." Some say the comparisons between Obama and Lincoln only go so far.
