From May 27th-June 5th, 2016, my painting, Bernie Sanders Is Fingerlickin Good (which had been previously shown at Future Studio Gallery and featured in the HuffPost) was part of Bernie & The Revolution, a group exhibition at Fachapatoto in Boyle Heights, Los Angeles.

From the invite:
Bernie Sanders enjoys the enthusiastic support of many LA artists who are inspired by his words and character. A great variety of wonderful work is on display—paintings, sculptures, puppets, glass art, ceramic art, drawings, cartoons. Gallery proceeds and a portion of all artists’ proceeds go to the campaign.
The exhbition ran from May 27th – June 5th, with a closing weeking party on June 2nd, 2016 6-10PM at Fachapatoto (2000 E 1st Street, Boyle Heights 90033). Bernie & The Revolution was organized by Fachapatoto in collaboration with Future Studios and Rise Art Collective.
