Artist to Paint American Flag in Every State

Scott LoBadio, the self proclaimed “America’s Artist”, is looking to embark on a journey unlike any other in the art industry. Scott, a proud patriot, is taking a cross country trip to personally pay a tribute to United States Military veterans. His mission is to paint a three dimensional American flag at a VFW from each of the 50 states. The famous Staten Island, New York painter calls the American flag “The most meaningful, the most powerful, the most recognized, the most beautiful work of art.”

How can you paint a three dimensional American flag? Scott will use multiple colors (9 to be exact) in order to create a flag waving effect. The painted American flags will be anywhere from 30 x 20 feet to 80 x 40 feet depending on the location and resources available. It will take him up to three days to paint each flag before a dedicated ceremony will held to unveil the painting.

The first stop on Scott’s journey was in Fayetteville, North Carolina on February 20, 2015. This cross country, six month adventure will end on September 25, 2015. Other than being proud of his country, you might wonder why he is doing this.  He says that this is his way of recognizing the men and women of service for our country. “This my way of saying, ‘Hey, thank you’” – says LoBadio.
