The United States of America was forged through the blood and sacrifice of patriots to realize their dreams of a democratic society. They left, homes, families, crossed oceans, and waged war to build what the world now recognizes as the greatest nation on the planet. All too often today the concept of democracy is taken for granted by those who have never known any other way. “Vote for You” was created to inspire and remind us that democracy comes with a price, a price to be paid on November 3rd, 2020. We’d like Americans to understand that they’re not voting for one candidate or the other but rather their own future. This fall be sure to vote for you…
With this series we truly hope to remind all Americans that there is so much more on the ballot to vote for than just who’s polishing a chair in the Oval Office. Judges, state senators, mayors, local sheriffs and city ordinances, it’s these measures that will affect your life far more than whoever resides at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. So take the 15 minutes to study up on your local ballot, a quick search of your local Secretary of State’s website will show you what’s on there, that way you can do more than throw a dart at your ballot to try and make a difference.

The mural titled “Vote For You” was hand painted by the insanely talented Nicolette Capuano (Above) over the course of two weeks working nearly eight hours a day. Her work ethic and attention to detail has no equal in my humble opinion as you can see in a few of the detail images below.
Below you’ll see the project’s final iteration as the subjects who have come to the studio explain what they will be voting for this year. Not unlike our country, answers are as varied as the subjects themselves. If you’d like to be a part of this project which will come to a close on November 3rd 2020 please email Jacq@JamesDouglas.com to set up an appointment. If you’re interested in potentially purchasing the mural itself, (It is for sale) please contact Info@NicoletteAtelier.com.
