About the Artwork:
The painting, also known as "The Freedom Bar," is a personal commentary on political correctness as well as a celebration of the repeal of the 18th Amendment. The densely populated bar scene features a host of liquorati, the big-names, past and present, associated with the spirits industry (including Adolphus Busch and the Jim Beam Family) schmoozing away with such spirited icons as Captain Morgan and the St. Paulie Girl. Prohibition was repealed on December 5th, 1933, with the passage of the 21st Amendment.
