What is the American Dream? 50 years ago the imagery of the American Dream consisted of white picket-fences and well-behaved 2.5 children, because it was the dream of the Majority; of the middle-income caucasian family. Minorities in America did not lack voices, cameras or paintbrushes, but they lacked exposure. Luckily, this is no longer true, and the diversity of the American Dream (and the inherent beauty within that concept) has started peek out from around from a once neglected corner.

So how do we visually and textually represent the new American Dream? and in what context? Visual arts and writing have always played an integral role in emoting public response to policy, but these practices have the power to do much more: to create an ongoing dialogue about the personal experiences of the citizens living under these policies. After all, the most dynamic and remarkable aspect of the democratic process is the Individual, and the notion that within the One lies the ability to change things for the Many. To amend. To appeal. To revise. To revolutionize can start with a sketch on a napkin or a limmerick in a bathroom stall.

Revisions of the American Dream is an web-based movement to give exposure to young and emerging visual and literary artists who wish to be part of the aforementioned dialogue. This site is a new kind of exhibition space where the works are digital (very much ethereal and temporary), but the value of their respective messages can be seen all around us, and are edified by the course of American history.
