Post image for Unexpected Election Revelation: Joy Can Be Found in a Brooklyn Call Bank

Art and the presidential race don’t often collide. Every once and a while we can report on an artist who’s rendered Trump with a small dick, or more recently, the bizarre Twinks4Trump art show. But mostly, the election replaces the art news on our feeds, rather than intermingles with it.
