The city of Santa Clarita will be showcasing artwork using the symbol of American freedom – the American Flag, at the “Stars and Stripes Imagined” art exhibition in the First Floor Gallery at City Hall.
The exhibit will be on display from April 3, 2017 to July 20, 2017. The gallery is located at 23920 Valencia Boulevard.
The symbol of American freedom has been the source of inspiration to many artists throughout the last century – often using its iconic image to form political commentary about the issues facing the nation. Artists have used it to both honor their country and tear it down. Works in this exhibition honor the symbol, while others re-interpret the symbol, or use the symbol to make a statement.
A free public art reception will be held in the First Floor Gallery on Wednesday, April 12, 2017 from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. Residents are invited to join the Santa Clarita City Council, city of Santa Clarita’s Arts Commission and Arts and Events Division for light appetizers, entertainment and a chance to mingle with the artists featured in the exhibit.
