For the past 100 years, Missouri has been a bellwether in every White House race, voting for the winning presidential candidate in every election except 1956. In the 2008 election, Missouri again played a crucial role as a swing state. Missouri played host to all four candidates who were in and out of the state frequently and Obama and McCain making sure they got the Missouri vote. Missouri however got it wrong in 2008 for the second time in 100 years and possibly losing the important bellwether status. As Missouri was bombarded with ads, little money was comparatively spent in New York courting the voters. The exhibition brings images from the 2008 presidential election year in the Heartland – to New York.
