Canned Patriotism

The Spring faculty art show went up this week, and I loved this piece by Jean Grosser (reproduced here with permission). Jean's comments:

The title is Warhol's Johns a reference to Warhol's soup can paintings and Jasper Johns paintings of the American flag from the 1950s (hence the 48 "stars"). [...] All the canned food will be donated to the Harvest Hope Food Bank at the close of the show.
I thought it was ingenious to use the soup cans to make stripes.
