2020, America Revealed
MetadataShow full item record
The 2020 pandemic hit and a lot of things changed and thousands of people were against guidelines and mandates, turning a blind eye to something very serious. I was inspired to create a print for depicting America and Americans as whole as careless and selfish. We preach unity and safety from others yet still find ways to build a wall and politics plays a big part in it. In my piece I chose Uncle Sam as my subject matter as he is the symbol for America. Uncle Sam is shown as a bust being carried by a person who is divided into two representing division in our country as well as Uncle Sam wearing his mask improperly as a way to signify America’s poor execution in handling the virus only to be met halfway.
