art, technique, and politics

19-year old Kristina Costa won Best of Show in the Skidmore College Student Art Exhibit with her 6-foot high portrait of Dumbya. She updates it regularly, having to do it at the Gallery since the piece has become too heavy for her to carry. Why updates? Cuz it’s made entirely of small plastic toy soldiers, one for each sevice member fatality in Iraq.
Go here to see a photo of her work of conscience.
