Made in America

The Made in America photograph is a blend of two centuries, where a ninety-year-old sidewalk provided an entrance for a beautiful lady—a lady of today—who’s on the go. Both subjects capture our attention with their unique charms. The 1920’s-era Massachusetts walkway evokes an art-deco style, where a forgotten craftsman built a brass and stone scene that linked his day to ours. His gateway marked the United States’ progress in scores of years; his work endured the renovations of a town that transitioned from steam power to girl power. A lasting entrance and a mobile woman: Both are made in America.

About Ara Hagopian's The LITERATE Show

For over thirty years, I have enjoyed drawing beautiful shapes and writing complementary stories. The imagery tends to focus on our place in the world—whomever or whatever we may be. I am influenced by Twentieth Century history—I read vintage magazines, books and letters. Inspiration comes from visualizing human achievement and personal interaction—derived from people, places and things which may be obscure, but never insignificant. My pen-and-ink THE MAGNIFICENT RECOVERY was selected by the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston for their 2008 summer art auction.
