Our broadsheet handout was a great success!!! Many thanks to all our friends and supporters!!!
Yesterday we had many important conversations with people visiting from all around the globe, and also spoke with veterans, college students, construction workers, and other everyday citizens.
They all agreed there is a problem in the US, and part of it is called the Police State. We encouraged them to start change by not being afraid to have conversations about what they see with friends and family. Change doesn’t have to come in a grandiose form. It can and should start with a conversation. With all this in mind, we confidently move forward with plans to print the 24 page newspaper, and expand this crucial conversation. Some quotes from yesterday:
“What you are doing is very important. When it comes to the US, there are two countries. The one we see on TV, and then the real one.” – Chilean visitor outside of the MET
“This is a very imorptant project, I wish you guys luck.” – Vietnam Veteran outside the MET
“You’re on my wavelength.” – woman exiting MoMA
“It’s good you guys are acknowledging this problem.” – Guggenheim visitor
“Beautiful. What you are doing is very important.” – New Museum visitor
This Sunday, November 11th, we will be distributing the broadsheets to anyone who wants them in front of NYC art museums. This is the only time we will not be charging for the sheets! A rough schedule of when and where we plan to be is below. If things change, we will update the Facebook page accordingly. Hope to see you there!
Guggenheim 11:00 am – 11:55 am
MET Museum 12:00 pm – 12:50 pm
Whitney Museum 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm
MoMA 2:30 pm – 3:30 pm

…and then if there’s time we will pass by the NURTUREart Benefit, at the Charles Bank gallery on the Bowery.
Our hearts go out to everyone effected by this incredibly violent storm, and all those still suffering without electricity, water, heat and necessary provisions. We hope you and your loved ones remain safe through this tough recovery process.
