Moon Over Bonfire 1965 is one painting from a series entitled The Yearbook Revisited, and celebrates the time-honored tradition of the cheerleader pyramid. Themes of hopes, dreams, regret, popularity, angst and coming of age appear in this collection of paintings.
Cultural markers like big hair and Classic Coke bottles may elicit a pleasant wave of nostalgia for those who lived it, but may also unearth long-buried stories of youth—some ready to share, others better left untold. For those who did not live it, The Yearbook Revisited offers a glimpse into the social climate experienced by an earlier generation. Viewing it through the filter of time is sure to open conversations about how much has changed and how much has remained the same.
