With generosity, substance, and well-rounded creative artists at work, America's cultural landscape laid claim to its soil in the 1980s. Charged with innovative and fresh manufacturing power, the 80s seized the heart and imagination of its offspring and cultural moment. It was truly a golden age to experience: Mister Rogers at his peak, Nintendo at its birth, Speilberg in his prime, He-Man at its start, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Alf at their debut, a new plethora of ideas bustled around the world in a light-hearted and nourishing new way. Yet, with creation comes destruction...John Lennon, one of the 20th Century's most famous leaders of freedom and peace was shot dead in 1980, and the loss of his death still echoes to this day. Yet despite his loss, the march of truth carried on in the voice of the 1980's greatest artists and curators. To this day, the 80s remains the last generation that innocence, at large, can still be frequently traced.
