A Transparent American Flag.
20% of the sales will go to United Way of Central Indiana to help uplift forgotten Americans.
Coronavirus was only the spark that lit the flame, exposing the United State’s fragility and evils to the world. America has some skeletons in the closet; unequal access to health care, discrimination, suppression, food deserts, unequal pay, unbalance systems...the list could go on and on. All of these evils are being uncovered and inflamed by the pandemic.
This piece was inspired by the many political signs in my neighborhood. What motivates one to publicly announce their political standing? What does this say about the person? How does the viewer react to these signs? Are stereotypes made? How about the contrast of signs in urban vs rural? Downtown vs. suburbia? Black neighborhoods vs. white neighborhoods? Poor vs. wealthy neighborhoods? America is far from united in a time where we need to work together. A time where we must care about one another and put aside our differences for the betterment of the people around us.
Remind yourself of our transparency. What will you fight for to make our country less fragile? More transparent? Lessening the evils and demons of our past?
