In this mixed-media installation, artist DeWayne Barton uses poetry and campaign memorabilia—get-out-the-vote signs, photos of noted public figures, campaign buttons, and images of U.S. currency—to fashion a personal statement about voting, the electoral process, and African American disenfranchisement. Barton grew up in the Barry Farms section of Anacostia.
