America IS great and all the things that make it REALLY great are unique to each and every one of us and deserve to be celebrated. What Really Makes America Great is a collection of artwork honoring all aspects of America from myriad artists in the Creative Action Network.
Creative Action Network founder and CEO Max Slavkin says this art series was inspired by a widespread interest in creating art to challenge the current political climate. Throughout the first 100 days of Donald Trump's presidency, 100 artists came together to illustrate the things that already make America great. The project has continued beyond those initial 100 days and 100 artists.
Each spread of the book contains an artist’s statement on the left and artwork on the right side. The art touches on several issues and topics, including religious freedom, immigration, energy solutions, plurality—and even bourbon. It features a foreword by Steven Heller, an American art director, journalist, critic, author, and editor who specializes in topics related to graphic design.
About the Author
The Creative Action Network is a community of artists and advocates making art with purpose. They run crowd-sourced campaigns around causes, inviting anyone and everyone to contribute their own meaningful designs. They then develop those designs into a range of physical goods, from posters to apparel to home goods, which they sell online, and in retailers all over the country, supporting artists and causes with every purchase.
