American Art is the debut album of the band Weatherbox. It was released on May 8, 2007 on Doghouse Records. The album received critical acclaim from several sources including underground music distribution company Smartpunk, who lauded the band's style:

"Thirteen songs of swelling love and bear-like strength. A stunning first step from this San Diego band destined for greatness. Gigantic guitar hooks and earth-shattering drum work seem to burst through a cloud of smoke, all while the vocalist provides a hefty dose of eclectic melodies with lyrics that harkens back to a bygone psychedelic era. With equal parts prog-rock and symphonic guitar ambience, "American Art" makes an undeniable statement."[citation needed]

The Alternative Press magazine, which gave the album 4½ stars, raved that the record would, "...change your life, if you let it."[2]
