There isn’t really anything more American than a good’ole slice of apple pie. But when it comes to art and entertainment, what do modern American styles really look like? Jazz music, our own comic book style, and movies like Fight Club all come from the U.S. We’ve also been known to indulge ourselves to the point of overconsumption from time to time. Despite our imperfections we find beauty in it all!
This Is American Art
In this country, as in every country, our art is far greater than our politics.” – Grant Snider
There’s so much beauty in the world. Sometimes I feel like I’m seeing it all at once, and it’s too much, my heart fills up like a balloon that’s about to burst… And then I remember to relax, and stop trying to hold on to it, and then it flows through me like rain and I can’t feel anything but gratitude for every single moment of my stupid little life… You have no idea what I’m talking about, I’m sure. But don’t worry… You will someday.” – Lester Burnham, American Beauty
What kind of art are you grateful for in your life?
