2018 Art Search for "lady"

Freedom Killed Lady Liberty

by: Sy Van Tran and Houston Burners
from: Houston, TX
year: 2018

The large scale installation of the Statue of Liberty gunned down and holding up her heart asks Participants to ponder the meaning of Freedom Killed Lady Liberty. Seeing the icon of lady liberty illustrated in this manner startles the viewers into taking notice. It asks viewers to think about gun issues from an emotional and compassionate perspective rather than the standard partisan talking points we often hear in the media. It puts a serious topic into a unique perspective for Participants, stirring emotions, and invoking deeper thoughts, questioning the meaning and purpose of the Second Amendment and what it means to be free.
