No More Water. The Fire Next Time
Robbie Conal Kicks Off The 1xRUN x Flint Water Crisis Print Series To Benefit The Flint Child Health & Development Fund + Michigan ACLU

April 25th marks an?anniversary that many Flint, Michigan residents would rather forget. Three years ago the city of Flint switched the city's water supply from the Great Lakes Water Authority to the highly corrosive Flint River. Over the ensuing three years, Flint residents would stage protests and aim to expose politicians responsible for the disastrous switch over. Along with the help of protests from Flint residents and the work of veteran news reporters like the Michigan ACLU's Curt Guyette the Flint Water crisis was brought into the national spotlight. Three years later and not much has changed, find out more about the Flint Water Crisis on the Michigan ACLU and on Detroit Metro Times.

Watch the Michigan ACLU's docmentary on the Flint Water Crisis on News.1xRUN.com to find out more about the Flint Water Crisis.

"I’m very annoyed with Slick Rick Snyder, but to be real about it, he’s just a festering symptom of the fucked up values of a power structure that allows bottled water companies to pay less for water than ordinary U.S. citizens in many of the poorest of our communities. What kind of country do we want to live in anyway?

This piece is a “perfect” addendum to a series I’ve been painting since the Presidential election, “The Cabinet of Horrors.” So far I’ve done Trump twice—no, three times!—Kelly Anne Conway, Rex Tillerson, Steve Bannon, Jefferson Beauregard Sessions III and Betsy DeVos. Of course I have way more work ahead of me, as do we all…" - Robbie Conal


ABOUT THE ARTIST:
Robbie Conal grew up on the upper west side of Manhattan (not Kansas)--his parents were both union organizers who considered the major art museums to be day care centers for him. He attended the Art Students League when he was 8 years old. Not by choice. Then, the High School of Music & Art in New York '61),was an O.H. (original hippie) in the Haight Ashbury by winter, '63, received a BFA from San Francisco State University (1969... more or less) and a Masters of Fine Arts degree from Stanford University (1978... for sure).

In 1984 he moved to Los Angeles and made nasty little black and white oil portraits of ugly old white men in suits and ties- politicians and bureaucrats who, by his absurdist standards, had abused their power in the name of representative democracy. In 1986 he began translating them into satirical street posters ("MEN WITH NO LIPS")
