Richard Serra, legendary American artist renowned for his large metal sculptures and black and white works, has created an iconic series titled Fake President in honor of Norman Lear’s 95th birthday and to help PFAW Foundation. The donation reflects the longstanding relationship of art and advocacy in pushing boundaries and changing minds just as Lear’s shows, like All in the Family and The Jeffersons, have for decades. This isn’t Serra’s first experience with activism: he created a piece about torture at Abu Ghraib in 2004 and closing his gallery’s doors for the J20 Art Strike on Inauguration Day 2017. Right now, fighting for free expression, religious liberty, equal justice under the law, and the right to vote has become even more urgent and important.
