Unused Hillary victory party confetti turned into Aspen art exhibit

Longtime Hillary Clinton supporter Bunny Burson is transforming the unused election night confetti from Clinton’s humiliating defeat to Donald Trump last November into something special.

The Colorado woman and her husband Charles attended Clinton’s party in New York on election night to witness the first female candidate for a major political party “shatter that highest, hardest glass ceiling,” Burson told The Aspen Times.

When that didn’t happen, she came up with another idea for 200 pounds of Clinton confetti that went unused: to encase it glass snow globes with a metal placard inside that reads “And Still I Rise” – a reference to a Maya Angelou poem of the same name.

Bunny Burson made 1,000 of the special snow globes, which she’s selling at the grand opening of her “And Still I Rise” art exhibit at the Anderson Ranch Arts Center in Snowmass Village.

The globes sold locally will go to the Arts Center, while proceeds from sales elsewhere will go to Planned Parenthood, according to the news site.

“It was a natural progression when this happened, as sad as it was, to use the confetti to lift people up — including myself,” Bunny Burson said at the opening Tuesday. “It was cathartic for me to make the work, and I want young women and girls who see it to be able to do what they dream of doing and break the glass ceiling.”
