The paintings in William DeBilzan’s UNITED WE STAND series send the message that we must unite as one.

The patriotic ballad The Liberty Song, written in 1768 on the eve of the American Revolution, introduced the verse “Join hand in hand, brave Americans all! By uniting we stand, by dividing we fall.” That message – “united we stand, divided we fall” – would guide Americans through many challenging times that lay ahead. By incorporating this message along with the American flag in his paintings, DeBilzan skillfully reminds us of this history. The paintings in the UNITED WE STAND series are intentionally non-political. Instead, the artist describes his paintings as “patriotic and pro-American, in the sense that we as Americans need to set politics aside and join together as one nation.”
