Printmaker, Bruce Waldman, is one of the most celebrated illustrators and printmakers of our time. He was recently commissioned to create posters of the Obama and Romney Presidential campaigns and chose Revere for the limited edition prints.
"The assignment to do the portraits of Romney and Obama was given to me by Stephen Fredericks, the President and Founder of the New York Society of Etchers, in conjunction with the Sacred Gallery on Broadway in soho for "The Art of Democracy" exhibition that is put on every four years in conjunction with the presidential election."
Waldman intends for the show to travel to other cities in the US. Four years ago the prints travelled to Chicago, California, along with other locations.
The show is on display right now at The Sacred Gallery on broadway in soho. The designer for the posters was Lou Netter.
Waldman's prints are in the permanent collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, The New York Historical Society, The Bronx Zoological Museum, The Royal Collection, London,The Library of Congress, Washington DC, The Housatonic Museum of Art in Connecticut, and The New York Transit Museum.
