Fancy Farm 2016: Signs shout messages

Ivan Potter

It was political junkie heaven as people, media, police all converged at a crossroads in far West Kentucky. Several thousand political leaders, protestors, hecklers, and media gathered in a 10,000 sq, foot enclosed speaking area to scream at each other.

Part of this annual slug fest included the American art form of signs and posters. At this year's gathering, over thirty separate sign designs were in sight.

Free form, homemade, and expensive professional mass produced signs shouted out themes, threats, I Love My Man for Office, Take That You Dirty Rat - themes framed in a colorful array of art in a very crowed space.
