Even if you didn't get a ticket to the Obama Inauguration, your art can sill attend. But only IF it wins the Manifest Hope:DC Gallery art contest. You can submit work in any medium–watercolor; magic marker; spray paint; ceramic sculpture; blood, sweat and tears. The themes are: 
1. Health Care Reform
2. Workers' Rights
3. The Green Economy
Manifest Hope is the organization that disseminated the iconic Obama HOPE and PROGRESS posters. So, think along those lines. The winning pieces will show at the Manifest Hope:DC gallery in Washington on Inauguration weekend. Submit your art online and read more about each of the three themes here
