The United States today seems to be immersed in conflict. Each side of our political divide claims the truth. This art quilt explores this conflict. Dominating the upper portion of the composition is the term xenophobia along with a dictionary definition of the term. In the lower portion compassion, tolerance, and acceptance represent the other side of the divide. These ideas are exemplified in a printed portion of the sonnet "The New Colossus". This poem is featured on the plaque at the base of the Statue of Liberty. A vintage portrait of my Dad is symbolic of the fight we are now having in my country.
