There Are Artists Among Us Camp Flag
Screen printed felt. 24" x 18". Created for the Whitney Shop by Oxford Pennant.
This classic felt camp flag created by Oxford Pennant celebrates the Whitney Museum's dedication to the works of living artists.

The Whitney Museum of American Art was borne out of sculptor Gertrude Vanderbilt Whitney's advocacy on behalf of living American artists. At the beginning of the twentieth century, unknown artists found it nearly impossible to exhibit or sell their work as patrons were focused on art being created by known artists in France and England . Recognizing the obstacles these artists faced, Mrs. Whitney began purchasing and showing their work, thereby becoming the leading patron of American art from 1907 until her death in 1942. It was in this deeply personal way that Mrs. Whitney recognized that there were, indeed, artists among us. To learn more about the artists in the Whitney's collection, go to whitney.org/collection .
