America the Beautiful

Happy Independence Day! Many of you likely have exciting activities on your agenda today, like proudly parading through the streets, chowing down on some backyard BBQ, watching the night sky illuminate with sparkling bursts of color, or all of the above. For those of you in need of some balance between raucous outdoor festivities and quieter, more subdued plans, today is a great time to visit the DMA and stroll through the American art in our collection. The Museum is open today from 11:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m.

To celebrate the array of differing landscapes and perspectives that make up the United States, here are a few works from American artists that illustrate various scenes and slices of life in our country.

Small towns:


Big cities:


Towering mountainscapes:


Seaside scenes:


Deserts and dry lands:


Lush green views:


Everyday people:


And all the critters in between:

    An amazing compilation of our Country in the midst of embarrassing politics in Washington. A calming respite from the nonsense. Send it to Trump, Pelosi, Ryan, Schumer, and McConnell. Thank you for making the 4th of July better.
