This exhibition presents a diverse group of artist's visual depictions or evocations of the American flag from a liberal, progressive point of view. Working in a variety of media, these different physical representations of the American flag are intended to disrupt, question, challenge, claim, expose, change, provoke, criticize & honor what this potent American symbol signifies in this moment of great civil unrest and political upheaval. With the resurgence of white nationalism wrapped in the American flag, this exhibition is meant as a liberal, democratic response to counter the extreme right wing's fascist rhetoric & racist, white supremacist propaganda. With Laura Earle, John Gutoskey, Patricia Izzo, Donna Jackson, Martine MacDonald, Chris Reising, Stafford Smith, Jeffrey, Augustine Songco, Peter Sparling, Robin Vincent, S. Kay Young
