Of Thee I Sing

"Lighthouse Hill," Edward Hopper, 1927

My country ’tis of thee,

"Five Boys on a Wall," Eastman Johnson, c. 1875-1880

Sweet land of liberty, of thee I sing.

"Veterans of 1776 Returning from the War," William Tylee Ranney, 1848

Land where my fathers died,

Quilt, c. 1860-1865

Land of the pilgrim’s pride,

"Mountains, no. 19," Marsden Hartley, 1930

From every mountainside,

"America," Hiram Powers, 1860

Let freedom ring.

We wish you a very happy 4th of July (complete with a fireworks-filled sky, sparklers and lots of watermelon)! To create your own Independence Day-inspired art, check out the ideas at The Crafty Crow (for the kids) or Martha Stewart Living (for the grown-ups).
