Todd's fifth public art project renders the American flag's stars in skin tones as a salute to the diverse people who work, volunteer, create, and serve in the United States.
The American Dreamers Flag is a multi-cultural interpretation of the U.S. flag that honors Americans of all colors—from the indigenous peoples whose names grace our lands and waterways, to the international students whose innovations will power the future.

I would like to thank you for this project and for using this opportunity to stand up for something that we as a country
need to face together as one.
Todd originally developed the American Dreamers Flag to demonstrate solidarity with Colin Kaepernick and others taking a knee for racial injustice. Inspiration came from Angélica Dass's "Humanae" project. Todd partnered with the Minnesota chapter of the ACLU and two downtown Minneapolis condo buildings flanking the US Bank Stadium to fly his twist on the U.S. flag during Super Bowl LII.
In patriotism, this flag pays respect to America's powerful heritage as a nation of all races.
