Jack Balas, 2020: ELECTION DAY 2020 (#2002); India ink on paper, 30x22 inches

My Dad was a U.S. Army vet, WW II in France and Germany. I was in high school in 1971 and almost fell off my chair at my grandmother's the day he told one of my uncles he'd rather see his kids (my brother and me) GO TO CANADA than go into the fucking war in Vietnam.

I've been to Canada many times since then, but TODAY I'M REMEMBERING MY DAD REAL WELL.
