"Enough." is an exhibit that was installed prior to the 2008 election. It was inspired by the political climate which saturated the country, fueled by campaign rhetoric. While the title of the exhibit has many levels of interpretation, it most importantly sums up the feeling of aware Americans who had had enough of the Bush administration and its policies. The list of problems that our new president faced was extensive and illustrated the need for new leadership. This exhibit ended on November 2, just two days before the election.
