"To The Flag: Taking Liberties"
Three Rivers Art Festival

Curated by Kimberly Marrero
January 10 - March 31, 2001

Pittsburgh…Three Rivers Arts Festival’s winter exhibit presents To The Flag: Taking Liberties, January 10-March 31 at the Festival’s Gallery, 707 Penn Ave. in the Cultural District.

According to curator Kimberly Marrero of Suzanne Randolph Fine Arts in New York City, “This is a group exhibition that explores the diverse ways that artists approached and depicted the visual flag as an emblematic icon.” She goes on to say “To the Flag: Taking Liberties offers a challenge on several levels to its participating artists. The topic itself raises many timely issues reflective of the current state of global uncertainty. None of the work on view is a specific response to the recent political changes, but interpretations can certainly be made. The artists’ inventive exploration of the flag creates a kind of tension between this powerful symbol displayed all around us, and the aesthetic issues raised by interpretive views on a similar theme.”

Artists represented include Robert Mapplethorpe, Edward Mapplethorpe, Andy Warhol, Sam Messer, Ilona Granet, David Kramer, Steve Gerberich, Donald Lipski and Edward Wallowitch.
