The Presidential Ham

A few months ago, I received an email from a contributor, about an art project called “Presidential Ham“. I was to busy to read it, at the time, and then forgot all about it. Yesterday, while tidying up my inbox, I stumbled upon it again, and finally checked it out.

The Presidential Ham is an original art project that depicts American presidents holding a big piece of (you guessed it) ham. It doesn’t make much sense, I know, but that’s the main reason I thought it was perfect for OC. Bijijoo, the artist behind Presidential Ham, has always wanted to paint the presidents holding a ham, and 2010 is the year he finally realized his dream. The portraits are oil painted on prepared board, and you can check them all out on PresidentialHam.com.

    Thanks for the post, Spooky!

    The Presidents will debut in Portland, Oregon during the month of February 2011 (in celebration of Presidents Day) at the Basil Hallward Gallery in Powells Bookstore. However, they are currently in my basement bickering with each other. There have been a couple fist fights I've had to break up, but they're getting along fairly well, all things considered
