Bill Clinton was the
Art Police creation for the
1995 Grateful Dead Mardi Gras Parade.
Inhale to the Chief
(The code name for this highly secret project was "Elvis")
Bill Clinton was approximately 20 feet high, the spliff
you see below is 4.5 feet long. Bill definitely exhaled!
Clinton had just been
elected 42nd President of the United States
and had just been inaugurated. A month after the inauguration,
the Grateful Dead were performing thei annual Mardi Gras shows.
The Art Police decided to let Bill exhale since we figured
he had been holding it in for so long.
A Grateful Dead show was the perfect environment.
