Proceeds support DreamCorps, a social justice accelerator founded by Van Jones that advances economic, environmental, and criminal justice solutions. What Makes America Great is a collection of designs celebrating the things that our artists believe make America truly great.
Somehow, during the contentious 2016 presidential campaign, the fact that America is already great got lost among all of the negative rhetoric and no-holds-barred quest for votes. Once the dust settled, the Creative Action Network—a global community of artists making "art with purpose"—launched a project to remind America of what it stands for and to challenge the current political climate.
Creative Action Network enlisted their artist community to create posters celebrating the inherent American values that really make America great. The work of over 75 of those artists are showcased in the upcoming What REALLY Makes America Great hardcover book! It's hoped that their messages will help restore America's pride and change the climate from one of fear to one of hope.
