Organized by Capp Street Project in San Francisco, Old Glory, New Story presented assemblage, painting, photography, and mixed-media works by artists, architects, and industrial and graphic designers, working both individually and collaboratively. As the new millennium approached, these artists recognized that significant forces had altered and expanded America’s social and political landscape over the preceding century. In response, they created new flags and symbols for the United States as it prepared to enter the new century, even as they acknowledged the persistence of this two-hundred-year-old icon. Among the participating artists were Vito Acconci, Squeak Carnwath, Margaret Crane and John Winet, Lewis DeSoto, Douglas Hollis, Suzanne Lacy, Richard Posner, Joe Sam, and Andres Serrano.
