Today marks the United States of America's 236th birthday, and at Artsicle we have rounded up a collection to celebrate the occasion. For those who are sentimental, we offer Julia Goodman's American Boat Dock. For those who tastes skew abstract yet triumphant, we suggest Jill S. Krutick's Victory Day. For the die-hard fireworks enthusiasts, we present Gabriela Herman's Fireworks, which was taken on a Fourth of July celebration on Martha's Vineyard. For those with a love/hate relationship with the nation, we have Pantelis Klonaris' Wounded Empire. And for those who simply love Red, White, and Blue (here's looking at you, UK and France), we bring to your attention Annie Sailer's In Your Body, #2 and #3.
We wish you, Happy Fourth!
