Virtual Virginia

On this piece of Fields literature, Virginia stands amid a racially diverse tableau of citizens. At first glance, she looks like she’s leading a press conference.

At second glance, though, it looks like there’s been some cutting and pasting involved in getting two asian faces into the picture.
