LOGAN — “Long May She Wave: A Graphic History of the American Flag” will open Aug. 22 at the Dane G. Hansen Memorial Museum and run through Nov. 16.
Among the most recognizable icons in the world today, the American flag has enjoyed a long history of graphic renderings and artistic re-interpretations.
The flag design was so hastily adopted that it did not specify the arrangement of the stars. As a result, Americans interpreted the stars and stripes freely on everything from quilts and jewelry to games and commercial products.
From Civil War-era flags and Native American moccasins to political campaign buttons and original flag art, “Long May She Wave: A Graphic History of the American Flag” assembles thousands of American flag-related objects and artifacts from the private collection of Kit Hinrichs, one of the world’s leading graphic designers and a partner in the international design firm, Pentagram. Together, the range of objects and memorabilia presented comprise their own genre of folk art and are a unique part of American heritage.
