"With the 'Obama Art' wave beginning to crest with his election, we became inspired to invite that energy to the celebration and commemoration of his inauguration," says Bob. He went on to say "in many ways, the artistic movement inspired by Barack Obama and his message of change is likely to have contributed to his election." "We would like to celebrate that effort, and the artists that made it happen."
