I overheard someone looking at @marilynminter Trump Plaque today who said “I don’t know if I could live with that in my house”. I found that interesting because we are living with it as the leader of our country. I actually am very drawn to art like this because it makes me uneasy and a little uncomfortable. (I may have bought it....) #marilynminter #art #artist #nyc #artprints #downtown4democracy #d4d #america #usa #president

Moratorium (Gold Rainbow American Flag)" is an update of Jasper John's poster "Flag (Moratorium)," which was commissioned to commemorate the Moratorium to End the War in Vietnam, a series of protests throughout the US in 1969.  Horowitz's work sounds a final note in the artist's series of Rainbow Flag paintings, each of which is based on a different Johns Flag painting.  Reflecting a world tarnished by gold, Horowitz's "Moratorium" draws an analogy between the division, crisis, and mobilized resistance that the country experienced during the Vietnam War, and what is happening today under the dangerous, divisive, erratic and anti-democratic charge of Donald Trump and his administration.

Glenn O'Brien was one of the epicenters of my creative New York. His words for #Downtown4Democracy's mission statement in 2004 are as relevant today as they were then. His brilliance will be forever. Thank you Glenn. I will miss you. Rp @bronwynnyc
