Presidential Portrait 2017-2021
This NFT art piece was accepted for the 2021 Outside Forces Exhibition in Washington DC September 11th. – October 23rd.
If you are in Washington DC be sure and come in for a visit to this innovative gallery that believes like I do that anyone can be an artist.
What should be accepted as the official Presidential Portrait for 2017 – 2021? I propose this animated NFT art.
The exhibition is hosted at the Art Enables Gallery and they describe it as:
“While an exact definition of Outsider Art can be difficult to pin down, one often feels they know it when they see it: inventive work of extreme individuality motivated by the artist’s own personal concepts and desires, rather than the expectations of the mainstream art world. Art Enables embraces these more expansive parameters in “Outside Forces,” presenting work by artists who may not have had many opportunities to exhibit.“
I will be donating at least 50% of the proceeds of the sale of this work to Art Enables. I had the art “Close Our Eyes” in the exhibition in 2020 and donated all of the proceeds and the royalties from its first sale to Art Enables.
First NFT in show
Last year my art was the first animated gif and first NFT exhibited in the history of this annual exhibition. This year I repeat the feat and display another NFT animated gif. This year the exhibition is again live and in person, so I have placed the NFT animated gif in a digital frame.
