Campaign news from New Jersey. Laura Schwartz was running errands in Montclair, New Jersey when a Trump 2020 sign in the window of a local boutique made her take a second look; the “Make America Great Again” campaign sign was a backdrop to a cage, holding a dozen brown baby dolls in diapers. Next to it, a TV screen shows images of migrant children in detention centers.
The artwork is part of a larger body of political artwork y artist Amy Putman, whose art is inspired by Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign rhetoric and immigration policies, including a zero-tolerance policy that led to family separations at the U.S./Mexico border.
