MAGA hat submerged in urine

This year and this administration have been frighteningly apocalyptic for a lot of us. Artist Richard Muñoz-Moore is fighting back in his new show Dystopia. He calls it his “artistic clap-back to the Trump administration for the divisive rhetoric that is the bedrock of their movement.”

Dystopia is comprised of drawings, paintings, and sculptures made over the last four years and addresses many issues including race, women’s rights, COVID-19, gun control, and the cult phenomenon that is MAGA.
