White House goes artsy fartsy

The White House announced Tuesday that our FLOTUS has chosen 45 pieces of art (on loan), to be strewn through the Obama private residence, and the East and West Wing.   The First Lady chose a number of pieces from modern artists.  Sadly, Shepard Fairey didn’t make the list.  Neither did these guys!

Although BoL had trouble finding the exact list, here are samples from some of the artists:

"Variant/Adobe" (The Josef and Anni Albers Foundation)
