Political views aside, you've gotta love Barack and Michelle. From the First Lady's enviable garden and green thumb, to the First Couple's adorable PDA, their appeal as husband and wife is undeniable.
And while photos have done a decent job of immortalizing the power pair, a new exhibit at the DuSable Museum in Chicago does it in a different way -- with quilts.
"Journey Of Hope In America" features a collection of "power quilts," as they're being called, from a wide range of quilting styles that depict significant moments since Obama's 2008 election.
Cozying up under any of the 90 works could get a little, well, awkward, but they're certainly pretty to look at.
The exhibition opens today and runs through May 9, 2012.
