I collect all kinds of objects, ideas, and arcane bits of information. In this poster, I hope to inspire folks to vote by sharing some things I find awesome about our country from the perspective of an immigrant who wasn’t born with the right to vote. In this poster, I offer up my appreciation of American landscapes as discovered through my collection of 1960s Paint By Numbers, my love of American folk music and the rich culture of taking pride in our work and land as expressed by Woody Guthrie, and the immense opportunity I see embedded in the consequential act of voting for our beliefs. We live in a country rich with influence—indeed, who we are is predicated on our commitment to look, reflect, evolve, and voice our convictions. And, I believe the most influential tool at our disposal is the vote. Use it freely.
