Randy Jones at Brooklyn Public Library
NOVEMBER 24, 2008
When we were putting my show in the main entrance of the Brooklyn Public Library ,we were among to the throngs of people , and many were asking me questions about the presidential election.
There was great optimism of an Obama victory , but. it wasn't a done deal yet. I do have a very cute John McCain to keep any lingering republicans happy.
It was great that so many people of all ages and ethnicity's asked about my art on the eve of a historical election. It was a great experience .
The show opened on Election day, and the jubilation began that historic night. We had a reception in the basement the following Thursday. It was a perfect time for a exhibition like this.
I hope that some of you Drawger friends can come over to see the show this Saturday afternoon. It'll be up till January 10
