PatriotismIconsManners & customsSymbolsSalt Lake Art Centerculturecultural heritage
As a nation, Americans look continually to our heritage, beliefs, and daily rituals to define ourselves as a culture. Yet our national identity is complex, and it is difficult to characterize a people by any one symbol, ethnicity, or boundary. All American: Defining Ourselves in a Time of Change features 13 contemporary artists whose work evokes a vital dialogue, whether with patriotic pride or cautious skepticism, about the icons and traditions that define us. These artists, working in a variety of media, incorporate history, ideologies and symbolism into their art as a means of exploring what it means to be an American. Exhibition held in the Main and Projects Gallery spaces.
