For this art gallery, I wanted to examine a topic that I was a part of. I chose to look at the symbolism that everyday objects and situations convey about the experience of living in and growing up in a "typical" American fashion. Each of the works from this gallery are unique, but offer a peek at a part of the American lifestyle. There are objects like toy trucks, beds, automobiles, furniture, movie advertisements, swim trunks, hats, and clothing. Everyone in America has experience with some of these objects and the ideas or situations that they come with. There is art by famous artists like Van Gogh, but there are also photos about different cultural mainstays. Overall, this gallery provides a diverse and well-rounded look at American life through simple objects and everyday experiences. American life is a major element of Western Civilization, and these art works show that as well.
