What does independence mean to you? This is a question Americans asked themselves in the mid-1970s, when the country commemorated the 200th anniversary of the signing of the Declaration of Independence. At the time, the United States was experiencing social, economic, and political turmoil – from the energy crisis to the resignation of a president. In the midst of this strife, the Bicentennial gave Americans solace and cause for celebration. Artists joined their compatriots in reflecting upon the meaning of independence and American citizenship. They expressed these themes in works as diverse as America itself. Come explore the Hunter’s newest Collection Focus exhibition.
