#MayDay Gallery

‎"Don't ask yourself what the world needs. Ask yourself what makes you come alive and then go do that. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive." ~ Howard Thurman

‎"The artist who takes up revolution will quickly realize that creation and revolution are inseparable entities!" ~ Pablo Picasso


On May 1st, 2012, everyone in New York who leaves their house or looks out their window will see public art as part of an historic MayDay celebration. Here are just some of the projects underway, with details about where you can see them and how you can participate in their creation.

May Day schedule / email inquiries / submit a project / volunteer to participate / offer materials (art supplies, workspace, etc) / facebook / planners mailing list / maydaynyc.org

OWS Poetry Collective - http://artsandculture.nycga.net/network/guilds/poetry/

What is it? We are organizing poetry assemblies which are free, public readings of your poem or someone else’s. Each person has 3 minutes to read and names are drawn randomly from a hat.

Where Can I see it? We will be at Bryant Park from 11am - 1pm for a Poets Lunch assembly, and at Union Square at 3:30pm for a Poetry Assembly, and finally at a convergence zone TBD (possibly Battery Park) around 7:30pm for a tentative participatory poetry projection.

How Can I help?  Bring a poem and join us. For more info, see our website above or contact us at: occupypoetry [at] gmail.com
