Boing Boing pal Sean Bonner of Metroblogging and decades of internet troublemaking fame is in DC for the presidential inauguration, serving as our roving correspondent. He shot this impressionistic report of cool art, kitschy ephemera, and other wacky public displays of Obamamania. Included in this Boing Boing video episode: a peek inside Yosi Sergant's amazing Manifest Hope art show, including an amazing wire sculpture of Obama by Michael Murry.

Below, another piece from the Manifest Hope Show. "The Hopeful Hearts Club," a Sergeant Peppers/Beatles inspired piece by Michael Cuffe.
