Exhibit: The American Dream
June 6, 2014 - July 20, 2014FREE
What is the American Dream?
The American Dream is an expression/term that is often used. We refer to it, we talk about it, and make the assumption that we are all talking about the same thing.
If you look up American Dream in the dictionary:
the ideals of freedom, equality, and opportunity traditionally held to be available to every American.
a life of personal happiness and material comfort as traditionally sought by individuals in the U.S.
Origin: 1930–35 the American Dream: the notion that the American social, economic, and political system makes success possible for every individual
The truth is that we all have different lives. Our families, our heritage, our experiences influence how we see things and the dreams we might have.
This exhibit shares the perception of 15 different artists, 15 different individuals, who give us their very own interpretation of the American Dream. The exhibit is meant to be a dialogue with the viewer and an opportunity to put yourself in someone else’s shoes and understand their vision of the American Dream. Our objective is to start a conversation and dialogue.
