American Monologue delves into and challenges the concept of the American Dream, exploring resiliency, civic failure and success. The TV shows of the 1950s, such as Father Knows Best and Leave it to Beaver, epitomized the superficial nature of what we perceive to be the American Dream. Through the use of symbolism and installation, American Monologue ignites a discussion about memories, community, and division, shedding light on how past cultural decisions have shaped the present, and how current choices will impact the future of our society. Underneath the facade of the 1950s' success and beauty, racism, sexism, and homophobia were pervasive. This installation is a reflection on America's triumphs and struggles. The sculptural representation of colorful flowers growing next to a "For Sale By Owner" sign symbolizes the determination to rise above negative and improbable circumstances, whether they are natural disasters or man-made catastrophes. Will those who seek to return to a bygone era of black and white, exposing reactionary ideals, make America great again? Or will the unification and mobilization of progressive voices lead us towards a more colorful and inclusive society? What does the American Dream mean today? Is there even such a thing as the American Dream anymore? The intention is not to provide definitive answers to these questions, but rather to initiate a conversation.
