MFA alum Jac Lahav at Richmond Art Museum

Richmond Art Museum <>
Richmond Indiana – Aug 21 – Oct 2nd
If your in Richmond Indiana check out the Great Americans in their debut museum show! See the paintings HERE. <>
The Great Americans combine the American heroic, pop culture and history painting. The series, created by Jac Lahav, references a 2005 Discovery Channel show titled, “The Greatest American”. The show asked citizens to vote for the greatest American. Subsequently, Oprah Winfrey was voted into the top 10 knocking out Jonas Salk. In a culture where a talk show host outranks the scientist who created the polio vaccine, one must question if greatness is dictated by celebrity and image consumption.
