Dana C. Chandler: Fred Hampton’s Door 2 (1975)

Black Panther Party leader Fred Hampton was drugged and murdered by the Chicago Police in 1969.  Dana Chandler first memorialized the event in 1970 with a small trompe I’oeil painting of a door riddled with bullet holes. When that work was stolen from a exhibition, he executed this version using an actual door.
