Celebrate the exhibition, I Approve This Message, on view at the Toledo Museum of Art through November 8, 2016 with this super soft 50/50 American Apparel t-shirt. The Toledo Museum of Art logo is printed inside the shirt, with a TV head graphic on the front.
Imagery, music, sound effects, camera angles and words convey the message of political ads—but are they speaking to your heart or your head? I Approve This Message explores emotional responses to political ads by decoding the symbols and cues meant to influence viewers. Historic, even shocking, political ads are spotlighted in the Canaday Gallery where you can interact with, dissect and answer the question, “Would these have impacted my vote?” Even if you think you never want to see another political ad again, this nonpartisan, take-no-prisoners exhibition is unexpected, spirited and surprising. It will give you new insights into what you see and hear during the U.S. presidential election season.
