SAY WORD! | NYPL EXHIBIT OF BUSH ADMINISTRATION MUG SHOTS THRU 01 27 07
By Led Black
An art exhibit at the New York Public Library featuring doctored mug shots of George Bush and members of his administration has generated a tremendous amount of controversy and has some Republicans up in arms. Nora Ligorano and Marshall Reese’s Line Up, which is running at the main branch of NYPL until Jan 27th, is an impressive multi-media display that is composed of the fake mug shots as well as video and accompanying audio. In each of the photos members of the Bush administration hold a slate with the date when they told lies that the artists consider criminal. In Bush’s case, his slate reads 1.28.2003, which was the date of the State of the Union speech that included the bogus claim that Iraq had attempted to acquire Uranium from the African country of Niger. The lies continue and may just lead this country into another immoral and unprovoked war of choice with Iran. Stay tuned….
