The Divided States of Americans
Graphic Art | 16 x 20 inches | 5 Posters
“I am not what you think I am. You are what you think I am.”
The current, divisive political climate is causing increased self-awareness, especially among millennials who have been called a generation for activism, and marginalized groups. As false stereotypes are used to fulfill harmful political agenda, everyone’s realities are influenced. We are encouraged to draw lines, determine the worth of humanity, and demonize differences. The Divided States of Americans attempts in red, white, and blue—mirroring propaganda posters—to advocate for a different message: get a little closer to one another to see the greatness of diverse identity.
Each Poster has "They Say" statements on the left vs "I am" Statements on the right.
