WASHINGTON (AP) A D.C. artist is working on a campaign to put 100 sculptures of a raised hand around the capital.

The project, called "Give Me a Vote" is to draw awareness to district citizens' lack of voting rights, with no voting member in Congress.

Creator Peter Krsko says the 3-foot, 5-foot and 7-foot Fiberglas hand sculptures will begin to be placed around the city next week and will stay up for at least a month.

Krsko says the project was made possible by a grant of approximately $22,000.
