A mural project donated to the Monterey County Democratic Headquarters by local artists Denese Sanders & Paul Richmond in partnership with Open Ground Studios.

Painted during the 2020 Democratic National Convention.


Paul Richmond is an internationally recognized visual artist and activist whose career has included exhibitions in galleries and museums throughout the United States as well as publication in numerous art journals and anthologies.

We wanted to create a sense of hope and optimism by portraying the future President and Vice President in a style reminiscent of Shepard Fairey's beautiful Obama poster. Now is the time to be vocal, active, and show the world you stand for democracy,  equity, and truth! 

Due to popular requests, we are excited to partner with Color Tech, a homegrown business in Salinas California to create this Biden/Harris T-Shirt campaign! All proceeds go toward the Biden/Harris Campaign. Color Tech promises a quick fulfillment at the close of the campaign with shipments beginning around Oct. 21.
