Center for Contemporary Political Art

Episode 90: Today I talk to Robin Strongin at the Center for Contemporary Political Art in Washington DC. I generally try to stay away from politics on the podcast, but I had to learn more about this gallery.

They want to represent both sides, but no pro-Trump artists  responded to their calls for artwork. They have to work with what they have. So I encourage any Pro-Trumpers and Right Wing artists to connect with them.
