Artist Michele Pred sends this take on the American flag, made of1,443 hand-painted birth control pills. At 11” by 14”, “Promote the General Welfare” is part of Pred’s new project on reproductive rights. Pred crowd-sources material for her work – each pill is only about a quarter-inch around – and she needs more to finish the series.
If you’re in New York City this summer, you can see “Promote the General Welfare” for yourself at the Nancy Hoffman Gallery.
