Hillary Clinton Election Night Confetti Art Project

An Artist Used the Confetti From Hillary Clinton's Election Night Party in a Powerful Project


In the wake of President Donald Trump's presidency, many women across the country are turning their grief over Hillary Clinton's loss into powerful action. Whether it was joining the Women's March or embracing a new slogan, women are nevertheless persisting and protesting Trump's actions. One artist decided to channel her emotions into activism, turning unused confetti from Clinton's election night party into a moving art installation.

Bunny Burson, who is based in Missouri, was at the Javits Center the night of Nov. 8, 2016. Clinton's celebration, should she have won the presidency, was to include about 200 pounds of confetti that would rain over supporters. After Trump was declared the victor, the unused confetti landed in the hands of a Chicago company. Burson bought the confetti to create a snow globe installation at Bruno David Gallery in St. Louis, MO, with the words "And Still I Rise" (also the title of the piece) engraved on the gallery's window.

The phrase "And Still I Rise" is taken from Maya Angelou's poem of the same title. To Burson, it was a perfect name for the exhibition. "I want women and little girls to just not feel defeated by this," Burson said to CNN. "Keep going. Keep fighting." The installation opened on May 4 and continues through Aug. 12. Burson wants the project to inspire women as well. "I never dreamed it was going to be this exciting and this exhilarating," she said. "I want that flame to stay alive among women."
