As part of Hyperallergic‘s series “Drawing in a Time of Fear & Lies,” Susanne Slavick published her work “Pennies from Heaven I” on the website.
She writes, “The Pennies from Heaven drawings were created at the end of the Reagan era. Their titles refer to a 1936 song and 1981 film set during the Great Depression, another time of obscene income inequality. Today, economic inequality has reached levels not seen since 1929, the year that propelled so many citizens into poverty. We may look back on 2017 as another such precipitous year.”
