"We hold these truths to be self-evident: That all men are created equal; that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights; that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness." – The Declaration of Independence.
Show the world your confidence in the American spirit! Thomas Jefferson’s faith in the practicality and wisdom of American farmer was far greater than his belief in politicians holding the same virtues (the man certainly knew what he was talking about). To him, it would be perfectly logical that one of the truly unique and inspiring aspects of American art originate on a farm as well: barn door art.
Just because the door to hayloft needed to be replaced didn’t mean it needed to be thrown out, it simply needed to find another purpose. The beauty of Folk Art is that it communicates a cultural identity by conveying shared community values and aesthetics. It is not influenced by trends in the art community, but quite simply a desire to express a pure emotion or experience.
"The Spirit of ’76" is our way of saying we still embrace the core principles on which this great nation was founded and that the true American spirit is unshakeable. This remarkable canvas edition has to be touched to realize that it is not the 30 to 60 pounds of real heartland barn door. The image continues around all four edges of the canvas to complete its authentic feel. Finally, each Giclée comes with a set of pull rings to complete the presentation.
Available in two sizes, 42"x 28" and 26"x 18," this open edition canvas allows you to make a unique and definitive statement about your patriotic passion. Liven up your home or office with "The Spirit of ’76" and let freedom ring!
