Art of the Day: Sunday November 18, 2007

Lady Justice

- by Melia Dawn Newman

This week's theme: A Chance to Vote

A government for the people, by the people won't work without the people. Last week in the United States the citizens of The United States had the opportunity for its citizens to have a say in their political, social, and moral future. Artist are continually expressing themselves creatively, but last week was the time for everyone to express themselves in a way that can only be accomplished in a voting booth. Many municipal and state elections took place and in the next year, Americans will find themselves making decisions that will have an impact - not just locally, but nationally as well. Whether you are young, old, male, female, republican, democrat, libertarian, green, or a little bit of everything, voting is the chance to actively participate in government!

This week the art selections celebrate and remind us of the right to vote and why we vote in the United States.

A beautiful personification of the dawing of Justice.

Ready to hang, beautiful addition to your home of office

When I was in college and studying 19th century Frech art, the works about the French Revolution of Lady Liberty Leading the charge was one that always stuck in my mind. Justice was one of the things that the revolutionaries called for. But in the years following the revolution there were assinations and changing of governments in the name of liberty that made me wonder where Justice was in scheme of things. Hence her tears amongst her idyllic enviroment.
