It seems appropriate that during Olympic season, part of the modern art exhibition at the Portrait Gallery is a high-energy depiction of the USA. Everyone knows neon is in, but this piece really takes it to the next level. Be sure to examine the diversity between states. I loved seeing the artist’s interpretation of what each location brings to the U.S. and watching the video coverage flit between hectic public transportation and campaign ads to scenes of serene nature and children playing. Also, be sure to play Where’s Waldo and see what’s going on in Washington DC- it’s fun!
