Ed Ruscha
EE-NUF!

Ed Ruscha has created a limited-edition print and an accompanying poster, titled EE-NUF!, to support the People for the American Way’s (PFAW) campaign ENOUGH of Trump. The design features a “fast track” display at how Trump has worked to destroy our democracy. PFAW is a progressive advocacy organization founded to fight right-wing extremism and build a democratic society that implements the ideals of freedom, equality, opportunity, and justice for all.

The print and poster are available for purchase at the Gagosian Shop.
