Michael D'Antuono's Art And Response

The Art of Gun Control

April 12th, 2013

At a gun control themed art exhibit in Washington, D.C., I laid out the reasons why getting common sense gun control is so difficult in the U.S., and what we can do about it.

Transcript: I don’t know about you, but I’m angry. Angry that we live in a society that creates conditions that allow tragedies like Columbine and Sandy Hook to keep happening. Maybe it’s just me, but I find it appalling that as a nation, we are more concerned about protecting the right of an unbalanced individual to own an assault rifle than protecting our own children. If you were to read the death certificates of the victims of these mass shootings, I’m sure cause of death would read gun shot wounds. While technically accurate, that isn’t the real cause of death. The real cause of death is greed. The greed of the gun manufacturers, the greed of the NRA and the greed of the politicians who accept their money.

Is Stephen Colbert Unbalanced?

June 15th, 2012

That is the question a number of people are asking since he has not as yet given equal time to the progressive leaning artist Michael D’Antuono after devoting over five minutes of air time to conservative artist Jon McNaughton on The Colbert Report. Okay, full disclosure, the progressive leaning artist is me and the people asking are mainly family members.

The artist’s (me) campaign demanding equal time was kicked off with an entertaining YouTube video goo.gl/fLiLV  featuring an eclectic mix of characters calling on Colbert to be fair.

You can better serve Democracy (and take the “starving” out of starving artist) by posting the video on Colbert’s Facebook pagehttps://www.facebook.com/thecolbertreport or Tweet him ‪@ColbertReport to demand Colbert give D’Antuono (again, me) equal time. Do it for the children (my children).

The Art Of Corpacracy

March 22nd, 2012

With Corporate personhood, bailouts, tax breaks for the rich and entitlement cuts for the rest, one thing is clear, class warfare has been waged. Armed only with brush and canvas, artist, Michael D’Antuono fights back, by creating art that exposes the government’s servitude to the corporate elite. The rich and powerful use their vast resources to unfairly rig the system against the working man, thus monopolizing wealth and opportunity. Join the fight against them by sharing this video with as many people to raise awareness and motivation.
