    A very interesting collection from the Manifest Hope exhibitions. The artist movement for Obama's election campaign was really fascinating and pretty cool. This book shows the wide range of styles and forms of expression collected for the exhibition. It was fun to look at how a collection of subjects - Obama, heath care, change, hope, peace, unity, the environment, etc - were all addressed through a unique perspective by each artist. It reminded me again about how each person has something uniqu A very interesting collection from the Manifest Hope exhibitions.

It reminded me again about how each person has something unique to say about a subject that is important to all of us. There is no singe way to talk about or see something. I think that's pretty cool.

    Its amazing how much has changed in the nine months Obama has been in the White House. How I wish we could go back to that halycon period when we all believed things might actually change in Washington. This book is a heartfelt reminder and review of the art that was created to celebrate that feeling of hope.

    This book is a brief history and pictorial overview of Manifest Hope, the movement of artists that was initially mobilized by Shepard Fairey's iconic Obama posters utilized in the 2008 presidential election. Though there are occasional statements by artists explaining why they chose to become involved in Manifest Hope, for the most part the images speak for themselves.

    Wonderful catalogue and collection. Wish this kind of support continued beyond the original fanfare. Hope and Progress needed a sustainable movement beyond election years.
