American Civil War is a body of work created during the tumultuous last year by Italian born and Silver Spring, MD based artist Andrea Limauro. Limauro speculates that the bloodiest conflict fought by the United States did not end in 1865 at Appomattox Court House. Instead, the fight over equal rights moved to a prolonged 150 year “cold war” that culminated, but did not end, with confederate flag waving rioters storming the Capitol on January 6 of 2021. Today’s Antietams and Gettysburgs are fought with laws and law enforcement, courts and Congress, presidential campaigns and protest signs, pop culture and billboards, protests and acts of terrorism, acts of individual resistance and defiance and acts of violence. Come and see it all unfold in Andrea’s paintings.
Following the opening reception, American Civil War will be open to the public for viewing every Saturday in August from 12 to 3pm. You can also contact the artist at firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule a private viewing.
Culture House is located at 700 Delaware Ave. SW.
