Gallery Luperca in Nashville, TN is seeking submissions for TRUMPED UP: Art About The Donald. We’ve all witnessed the spectacle that is the 2016 presidential primary race. It’s been a befuddling circus of televised debates, twitter arguments, suspect polling data, and tiny hands that has left most Americans asking, “How did the Donald make it this far?” As the primary season draws to a close, it’s time for artists to focus their keen sensibilities on the Republican frontrunner in order to reveal just how strange, troubling and ridiculous this picture is fast becoming. Portraits, cartoons, lampoons, bling, stupid hats, #hairgoals…you name it…if it relates to Trump, it has a place in this exhibition.
