DESCRIPTION:

August 21 - October 2, 2011

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 America to vote for the greatest American.  Subsequently, Oprah Winfrey was voted into the top 10 greatest Americans knocking out Jonas Salk.   In a culture where a talk show host outranks the scientist who cured polio, one must question if greatness is dictated by celebrity and image consumption.  Born in Jerusalem, Israel, Jac Lahav currently resides in Brooklyn, New York.
