Artists turn out. The national presidential contest finally reaches California in June. After listening to what Iowa and Ohio think of the candidates, it’s finally time for the country’s most populous state of 40 million to weigh in.

The show invites artists from San Francisco and/or California, or those who have a personal connection to the West Coast, to frame and offer their commentary on the election.  It acknowledges the generally held view that the West Coast is “Left” — i.e. more progressive than the rest of the country.

Artists are free to promote, comment, or depict particular issues, or specific candidates, or to otherwise offer artworks inspired by the election.

Likely themes will include all the remaining candidates: Trump, Clinton, Sanders, Cruz, as well Libertarian Gary Johnson and Green Party candidate Jill Stein. It will reflect issues that have dominated the election: immigration, national security, the economy, and the personal foibles of the candidates.
