Artist's Description

The Secession Movement of Martha’s Vineyard – A bill was introduced into the State House proposing secession from Massachusetts. Overwhelming majorities voted for secession at town meetings all across the Islands. A convocation of the All-Island Selectmen’s Association on Martha’s Vineyard voted to leave the state and (maybe) the nation. For a while, it was headline news across the nation; it is comprehensively documented in the files of the Vineyard Gazette and the morgues of other media. It is commemorated not on plaques but in memorabilia including flags, clothing, and bumper stickers. Its spirit is there every time an Islander colloquially refers to the act of taking a trip off-Island as “going to America.”
