Michael D'Antuono's Art And Response

Politicon Panel: Art Effecting Change

Politicon panel Art Effecting Change

I was fortunate to have the opportunity to speak at Politicon this year on a panel about the power of art to effect change. Everything was going fine until conservative artist, Sabo went on a racist diatribe cursing at the audience and walking off stage. While Politicon held panels boasting bigger names such as Jake Tapper, Joy Reid, Chelsea Chandler, Rob Reiner, Roger Stone, Ann Coulter and others, ours might have been one of the most exciting. You can see the blow up here.

I also tricked Trump’s partner in crime and political trickster, Roger Stone, into taking a picture with me with my “Impeach Trump” art on my bag after thoroughly checking to see if I were wearing it on my shirt.
