John T. Unger Made An Awesome Huge American Flag With 20,000 Beer Bottle Tops
Patriotic John T. Unger's latest project is a 10x16ft U.S. flag made from more than 20,000 Budweiser caps. 'Old Glory' was first shown publicly at the Stagecoach Music Festival in California. The artist loves how the caps seem to glow in the sunlight and we're sure the flag was a huge hit at the festival! Unger says,
"What I loved about the project, was how iconic it was – you can't get more American than Bud caps. Bottle caps have long had a place in the folk art tradition as a decorative element. I love that the artwork traveled from coast-to-coast. Whatever your idea of America is, I think this piece speaks to that. This goes beyond 'made in America', it's a sculpture 'made of Americana'.
