The project—Red, White, and Black—evaluates African-American citizenship and who has the privilege to be critical and still patriotic. This collection of work examines this question through the usage of striking photography and surveys with expressive typography by examining how African-Americans view their United States citizenship by their commentaries and how they chose to exhibit the American flag.
Red, White, and Black—developed by graphic artist Antwon Key—was chosen as one of 265 Regional Winners in the most recent PRINT Regional Design Awards; sponsored by PRINT. The RDA is the industry’s most prestigious and well-respected American design competition. This project held inclusion in several art shows, such as Art & Democracy VI, the Minnesota Black Fine Art Show, and citizenSHIP.
