From day one of this magazine, we have promised to bring collectors, galleries and artists together in a way that has never happened in print before.

Myth & Memory American Myth & Memory: David Levinthal Photographs, an exhibition at the Smithsonian American Art Museum comprising 74 photographs, seeks to examine American cultural icons and the ways in which media played a part in mythologizing them. Levinthal’s work is inspired by the Western films, baseball cards and figurines of his childhood, and he aims to analyze how and why these subjects became a part of the American identity.
