American Dream

American Dream was a return to the popsicle image while considering more deeply connections found in the works Kinship and Kind.

I conceived the work American Dream as an attempt to pose an optimistic, connected vision of our shared humanity. The popsicles are riffs on Disney World’s Mickey Mouse Ice Cream Pops. Having wondered why these ice cream treats couldn’t be more reflective of the overall American population (celebrating our similarities and differences) I created my rendition of the dream. Each one is both an individual as well as a collective expression of simple, human joy.
