Artists (In Record Numbers) Against Bush

“Not since the height of the Vietnam War have so many actors, writers, artists, and musicians mobilized politically during an election year — the vast majority of them against Bush. It’s not just the usual liberal Hollywoodites, either, like Goldberg, Susan Sarandon, and Rob Reiner. Artists of every type are speaking out, from the hip-hoppers involved in impresario Russell Simmons’ nonpartisan voter-registration drive to literary lions such as novelists Joyce Carol Oates and Jonathan Franzen to respected visual artists such as Matthew Barney and Cecily Brown.”
