Rita Blitt, artist; Samuel A. Ward (1847-1903), composer, America the Beautiful; John Philip Sousa (1854-1932), composer, Stars and Stripes Forever. Blitt's inspiration was to contrast the construction of her 1,748-piece acrylic American flag with the creation of the flag of Betsy Ross in 1776. Blitt's 20 X 10.5-foot suspended flag was an official Bicentennial project of the state of Kansas.
