But today is like no other day.

perhaps it is a big day--but injecting politics into aesthetics is antithetical.

8 years? Don't you mean 8 long, painful years? Seriously though, it is a big day. A huge day. Some might say a ginormous day. It is important that everyone that can vote does, for the simple reason that they can.

p.s. I love this blog... I am an architecture student that is constantly bombarded by "high design" and I find the honesty and warmth here comforting.... Thank you so much for having it.

Oh anonymous, lighten up....not mentioning politics on this historic day would be negligent, and besides some of the most powerful and stirring art is born of politics. I you disagree, so be it ...that is your right but no disguises please. Halloween was last week!

I agree. the best design comes from political angst and optimism. I could never separate the two.

history in the making... i showed up to the polls at 6am and there were already 100 people on line. I'm thrilled that someone has the courage to post this on their blog!

curious that anonymous #2 chides anonymous #1 for "disguise"... but anonymous #1 has a point: think social realism (mix of art and politics) which ruined so much 30s and 40s literature/art...

I love this debate.

Art & politics have always been inseparable and should be in a land that prides itself on free speech. But the criteria here is that it be some form of art and not simply a political banner or button.
This is borderline art on a very symbolic day for U.S. culture. My vote is let it be and let's all get back to our apolitical lives tomorrrow. MC

rhetoric can be gussied up in all sorts of manner, even within the rubric of "art"... and who is to choose this "criteria" of which form is art...and every act can be deemed "political," just depends on the circumstance, the context...and i certainly do not agree that art and politics are "inseperable'--that only demeans the concept of art...muddies it up in the sullied machinations for power...unless you think art is for power?

In response to Anonymous #1 it's strong language to say politics & aesthetics are "antithetical" (defined as being in direct and unequivocal opposition)I think there is at least some doubt after reading for instance "The Edifice Complex" by Deyan Sudjic about how the rich and powerful shape the world and politics and aesthetics often do sleep together.
