A CNN digital art gallery

CNN commissioned artists to illustrate the theme of Power ahead of the 2012 election -- not just the obvious power that’s at stake, that politicians and presidents wield, but the sometimes more subtle forces that power us as a people and drive our debate over money, health, race and gender -- often to the point of protest and gridlock. We received a wide variety of work and curated them by themes, based on what we saw and the artists' statements. Click through the themes below to view their work. FULL STORY
