  • Cox's installation at the state Capitol today.

North Little Rock artist V.L. Cox, who is known nationally for her abstract paintings and mixed media work that references the South, decided to use art to make a political statement today at the State Capitol with her "End Hate" installation of labeled doors.

Inside, the Republican-dominated legislature is laboring away to codify that do not love gay, lesbian and transgender people as we love ourselves; chipping away at the right of legal abortion and bringing back the bloody back alley, seeking to use religion as a way to legalize discrimination, and working to pass other soulless, vote-driven laws by pretenders to righteousness. 

Outside, "End Hate" is saying, Why are we segregating ourselves, creating hateful division among Arkansans? To keep hate alive, and the door to re-election open, of course.
