Art Threat takes on National Portrait Gallery cancellation

The political art blog ArtThreat is sponsoring a contest in protest of the latest arts cut -- the cancellation of the long-planned National Portrait Gallery. They are soliciting portraits of the Prime Minister that best embody his attitude towards the arts, and their favourite will win a prize of $1000.

I'm looking forward to the planned exhibition of the works in Ottawa and Montreal (and hopefully in other cities across Canada, too). For more details, follow the link above. The deadline is January 31, 2009.
