Art is an expression of life, especially political life these days. This year Art Basel Miami captured one of our most historic moments in political history through the visage of President-elect Barack Obama. Barack Obama appeared in different ways and different works of art, last week all over Miami beach. Even as the financial crisis curbed many art transactions, there was still an overwhelming feeling of hope. Collective hope in the potential of our new President-elect Barack Obama and finally a newfound pride in America. It seems a picture really does say a thousand words.
