July 5, 2013

In the spirit of the 4th of July holiday, this Friday photo post is highlighting pieces from the DMA’s collection that have some patriotic flare! The works of art included below contain elements that call to mind the iconic poem “America the Beautiful” by Katharine Lee Bates. Can you think of any other works of art that could align with the poem?
