From 2011 to 2016, Nashville artist Mel Ziegler periodically drove across the United States with a supply of new American flags. When he saw a flag that was faded, weathered, or frayed, he would offer to replace the old flag with a new one, renewing people's outdoor displays while acquiring the materials for Flag Exchange. Ziegler says, "It is good that we renew and regenerate weathered flags. . . . Capturing them in this moment is what . . . gives them new meaning, new life." During this lecture by the artist, learn more about Flag Exchange and his artistic practice, which is centered on social and community engagement.
