This mixed-media artwork labeled The Carter Presidency appeared on Time the week of the 1980 Democratic National Convention. Artist Joan Hall recently reflected on the making of this work: "When I was given this assignment by Time magazine, I was assigned a long list of events . . . to include. . . . I believe that an illustrator must combine good graphics with content, so it was a bit of a challenge to put so much information on one cover without it looking too cluttered. I solved this problem by making individual compartments surrounding the sculpture of Carter."
