1. Johnson/Goldwater Campaign Sweater, 1964

2. Jackson/Clay Campaign Sweater, 1832

from the series by Lisa Anne Auerbach: Campaign Sweaters, 2008.

These sweaters emblazoned with American presidential campaign slogans were shown at Aspen Art Museum and around Aspen, Colorado, during the runup and aftermath of the 2008 presidential election.

Each sweater was specific to a campaign year, and had slogans from major campaigning parties on them, in addition to the names of the candidates and the year of the election. Sweaters were shown in shop windows around Aspen and were available to museum visitors to check out and wear around town during the exhibition.
