Reconfiguring the American Dream

. May 16, 2012.

It is difficult to identify a solid definition of American culture with such an eclectic mix of American experiences, yet there is a perceived inherent right to the “American Dream,” which classifies a certain level of success and ability to rise in social rank, that is apart of the very fabric of every citizen. The Gallery Project’s latest endeavor, American Dream, is a introspective multimedia exhibit featuring over 25 local, regional and national artists exploring the ever changing myths surrounding the great pursuit of happiness for which both native born and immigrated Americans alike strive. The exhibit requires viewers to redefine their own conception of the American Dream and what has become success in America as the country dives into 2012. The Exhibition runs through Sunday, March 4. Gallery Project, at 215 South Fourth Ave.  734-997-7012. www.thegalleryproject.com
