AMERICA was built on solid principles and values deemed important and necessary in producing a strong, productive society. But over time, changes have occurred. In today's fast-paced, technological world, many traditions have been forgotten or tossed aside amidst the bustle of life. Are these old attitudes and beliefs still relevant? Should we revisit and revise these ideals, so they may apply to our now “worldly” society? The embossed copper imaging reflected in AMERICA may spark such a discussion of tradition, personal values and their influence upon our current culture.
