Ink on wood panels; 2021

This piece commemorates the moment that Bernie Sanders took social media by storm with a photograph of him sitting in a chair, wearing a mask and mittens during President Biden’s inauguration. To further immortalize this achievement, I have pictured a proposed monument that adds a statuary depiction of Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez playing the part of Lady Liberty. When people say “this is the future liberals want”, I picture that future being something like this.
