Feeling the urge to pretend the past six months were a bad dream? A St. Louis art gallery has an exhibit of Hillary Clinton's ill-fated election night confetti, forever floating on the air of an alternate reality.
Artist Bunny Burson, who served under President Bill Clinton as executive director of the President's Committee on the Arts and the Humanities, bought the confetti from what was supposed to be Hillary's victory bash and turned it into art, according to a statement from the Bruno David Gallery.The shiny confetti continuously cascades inside a transparent case. The name of the exhibit, "I Still Rise," was taken from a Maya Angelou poem about persisting against all obstacles.
