Some throw their support behind a candidate with their vote. Others do it with their art.

The Los Angeles-based Balance of Power PAC, known for running the popular Facebook page “Hillary Clinton for President Supporters,” are making this campaign season a little more creative with an art show fundraiser on Saturday.

Eight artists have created portraits of Clinton to be auctioned alongside work by more than a dozen other local artists. These include Venice street artist Gary John, pop artist Nelson De La Nuez, glass painter Steven Marshall, mixed-media artist Ziba, realist painter Jeremy Geddes, and even famed graphic artist Shepard Fairey, whose “HOPE” poster of Barack Obama became an iconic symbol of the 2008 election.

If voting with your wallet in real time makes you break a sweat, get a sneak peak of the art and make an early bid at shop.balanceofpower.com/art.
