The traveling group exhibition Bad Moon Rising expo ses some of the dark sides of the world’s self-proclaimed greatest nation: the United States of America. With the election of a new president in Novem ber 2008\, people are optimistic about the future of the USA’s national and international politics\, economy and warfare. Nevertheless\, the country’s continual increase in unemployment\, poverty\, the financial downfall\, ex pensive and unreliable health care\, equal rights and overpriced education are problems that are yet to be resolved. Although the mantra-esque “Yes\, We Can” encourages us to believe in a better future\, we cannot start dream ing. Offensive\, annoying\, naughty and whimsical\, Bad Moon Rising 3 helps to reminds us of some of the most disturbing facts of the USA’s p ast and present. Through a selection of artworks\, artifacts and a-historic al references\, major themes such as politics\, religion\, society\, family \, war and the media are disturbingly portrayed\, casting a dark shadow ove r the USA’s promised ideologies of freedom and prosperity. - Juan William C havez
