Tina Mion's Virtual Election is an interactive installation of paintings modeled on the official Smithsonian Presidential deck of playing cards and an election over the Internet. The exhibition runs through the real 1996 elections.

As a sardonic retort to the notion of women as amateur artists, Mion and a few friends founded the "Sunday Painters" vowing to create one new work of art every week for a year. When Mion discovered an official deck of Smithsonian presidential bridge cards , her course was set... fifty-two weeks in a year, fifty-two cards in a deck.
