The drama league: Art+party residency - march 2018

Jessie joins The Drama League in their Fourth Friday Art+Party as an artist-in-residence. The painting featured is part of her "Middle America" series.

"Middle America” is a visual exploration of the pride, purity and patriotism found in America – both in the traditional sense and under a critical lens. What does it mean to be in “The Middle” in America? Can a country obsessed with extremes – that relentlessly claims to be the greatest country in the world – ever come to terms with what it might mean to relinquish greatness? How do we treat those we deem unfit for that greatness? Those who are stuck in the middle? Furthermore, with the middle class rapidly disappearing and industry changing, what lies in store for the midwest, flyover country, or Middle America? The resulting images depict our most mythic cultural identity: Middle America.
