Description

Through 349 images, celebrate America in all her glory. Whether it's a piece to hang on a wall, to be worn, or for marketing propaganda, see how sixty-four artists have represented the American flag and other patriotic symbols in their work. The American flag is an iconic image that inspires many, but it has also become a complex and controversial symbol since Congress first adopted it on June 14, 1777. These artists share not only their work but also the inspiration behind the pieces. Whether it's paying homage to a lost generation, remembering 9/11, or simply celebrating American pride, the various cultural and political viewpoints that define the country today are expressed through a variety of art forms-from watercolor paintings to crazy quilts, from oils to matchboxes, and from mixed media to digital. Let these images inspire you.
