America

Kimber Thompson's avatar Kimber Thompson

When 9/11 occurred, a surge of patriotism erupted across America. I was swept up in that spirit, but I also asked myself “What does it MEAN to be an American?” My answer is that we share memories - the people, places, events, and inventions that have not only shaped our nation, but have changed the world. From a distance, my mural depicts a beautiful Lake Michigan beach scene - the children running with freedom and joy towards the beach are our future. Up close you will see it’s made up of hundreds of pictures, organically woven into the fabric of the painting. Start your viewing with the World Trade Center - see how the smoke billows up to form a charging American Buffalo and then the hundreds of small pictures make up more of the background. Hope you enjoy! Vote for AMERICA!
