Lindsay Wanner began her venture into art-making by creating American flags from baseballs and baseball bats. The up-cycling element to her work allows her to create unique pieces that people cannot just buy in stores. United Skates of America is made out of authentic skateboard decks and wheels that embody “West Coast” vibes. Only two originals exist and The Current Iowa is lucky enough to have one! Although she has dabbled in many different types of art, she now specializes in works influenced by sports, music, and Americana. Her American flags represent different sects of the American public, while also drawing unmistakable parallels to the American flag paintings by Jasper Johns.  To find out what else from American culture Wanner has transformed into beautiful works of art, visit her website below!

Fun Fact: One of Lindsay Wanner’s pieces is hung in the home of Tony Orlando; next to his Congressional Medal of Honor and Entertainer of the Year awards.
