Today in Unintentional, No Make That Very Intentional Art

I was bopping around “Democracy for New Mexico” tonight and came across this oft-uploaded pic of NM Secretary of State Mary Herrera (above). And I finally made the connection. Isn’t the infamous Herrera photo actually a Cindy Sherman artphoto? You know, Cindy Sherman

the post-modern conceptual artist who takes pictures of herself as various characters (example above)? I can’t believe it’s taken me this long to figure out that Herrera is totally into the ironic feminist art scene and allowed commissioned Sherman to satirize the whole “Secretary of State” female objectification mindset.

Brilliant, Secretary Herrera. Simply brilliant. And here I was thinking she was just an incompetent, inexplicably chosen bureaucrat who couldn’t run an election to save her life. Boy, have I been successfully duped.
