In American Icons, we explore works of art that help us understand our nation, and what it means to be an American. From Walt Whitman’s Leaves of Grass to Cindy Sherman’s Untitled Film Stills, these classics have endured because they deal with issues we still care about today. What works of art do you think should be American Icons? We’re taking suggestions for the final episode in our season of American Icons.
