Artist Sheila Pree Bright has graciously offered to provide the lucky winner with a personal portrait in the style of her hugely popular “Young American” series, which asked a diverse group of Generation Y youth to pose with the American flag after being asked, “What does it mean to be an American in the 21st Century?”
On a mutually convenient day, the artist will arrange a photo shoot in which she will direct the participant to pose with the flag in a way that described his or her relationship to its symbol. The sitter will receive a 30x22 chromogenic mounted photograph, not framed. In addition, she will provide the viewer with a copy of the Young Americans catalog which captures 40 of her sitters which premiered at the High Museum of Art as a solo exhibition in 2008.
The sitter can be any age, so think about this broadly, you can purchase this for yourself, a child, or even a grandchild if you would like. The portrait is completed within one year.
The sitters expressed their perspectives in a statement and posed in their chosen stance with the American flag.
