Flagged for Discussion is a free, focus exhibition that embraces disparate representations of the United States flag from across time, posing questions and creating space for conversation within the gallery.
Featuring work by more than 20 artists from the nineteenth century to today and curated by Larissa Randall, curatorial associate at Crystal Bridges, this exhibition reveals how the flag functions differently within works of painting, printmaking, fiber, photography, and mixed media.
The US flag is widely reproduced and circulated by American artists, providing a foundational symbol to rally around, stand against, or identify with. Flagged for Discussion prompts reflection on the question, “What does the flag of the United States of America mean to you?”
