Glass Obama in Public Enemy Tee Polling Strong
September 6, 2012 - 12:54 pm
President Obama has an early lead in polling of life-sized glass busts of all U.S. presidents on display at the Pittsburgh Glass Center.
The “American Idols” exhibit features Obama dressed in a hoodie and Public Enemy T-shirt and runner-up Andrew Jackson in a sequined jacket.
There’s a tie for third between Bill Clinton, Theodore Roosevelt and George Washington.
“Within my work, there is an element of humor, a twist on a situation that requires a bit of forehand knowledge to fully appreciate the humor. I try to create a constant play between humor and seriousness,” said artist John Moran, who said he chose Obama’s attire when the senator was the target of Republicans in the 2008 election.
