Happy 4th Of July

Peter Liepke: Let’s Go Home, 2005


As we approach the birthday of our nation…

it’s timely to reflect on the words of one of our country’s great founding fathers, Thomas Jefferson, who said that “The principles outlined in the Declaration of Independence promised to lead America—and other nations on the globe—into a new era of freedom. It would inspire all peoples living under the burden of oppression and ignorance to open their eyes to the rights of mankind, to overturn the power of tyrants, and to declare the triumph of equality over inequality.”

Our responsibility as “We the People ” is to continue the American legacy of safeguarding and celebrating our birthright of freedom, independence and equality. Gallery 270 salutes our artists whose dogged determination and hard work exemplify the highest American ideals and confirm and awaken this spirit within ourselves.

Happy Independence Day!
