Deep Dive: The Flag

“The Flag” is a compelling collaboration between three renowned Denver artists: Darrell Anderson, Ron Hicks, and Michael Gadlin. This vertical American flag, crafted from broken rulers, offers a profound commentary on the current state of the political system, symbolically portraying it as being dominated by “rulers.” Each artist brings their distinctive style and perspective to the piece, creating a rich, multi-faceted work that challenges and engages viewers.

“The Flag” is not just a visual statement but a narrative woven from the diverse artistic languages of three friends. It invites contemplation on the nature of governance and the intricate, often fragmented reality of political power.
