Map to the election

Tomorrow is a day without art for me. I’m going to be a good citizen and try to help Kerry and the Democratic slate–if only I could figure out how to get a hold of my poll-watcher’s certificate (image, Jasper Johns’ “Map,” 1978, from Museum of Modern Art poster).

I thought I should point out that this image was made long before the whole red-state blue-state riff about a divided country. Every time I look at that bipolar map, I keep thinking that maybe what we all need is a little lithium, or a little helium, or better yet, a new president.

Back Wednesday.
