Michelle Erickson, The Party's Over $11,000>

Remember 2020, Michelle Erickson reclaims the Revolutionary War slogan “Don’t Tread On Me” while connecting former NFL player Colin Kaepernick’s silent pose of protest against racial injustice with the image of a kneeling slave made famous by Josiah Wedgwood’s 1787 abolitionist medallion “Am I Not A Man and A Brother.” In “The Party’s Over,” Erickson critiques America’s current political landscape by transposing portraits of contemporary political figures onto Paul Revere’s satirical 1774 engraving “The Able Doctor.”
