#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

Homemade Prayer Flags for May Day 

What is it? - A public art project led by artist Kira Zawacki that will hopefully create a huge, beautiful installation! People can feel free to write and decorate their thoughts, prayers, feelings, ideas, etc. on note cards that will be strung together with the sentiments of others to create personalized prayer flags to be hung anywhere and everywhere around the city! Streamlined consciousness!! 

Where Can I See It? - Starting out in Bryant Park around 9am and continuing throughout the events of the day!

 How Can I Help? - Donations of extra markers, note cards, ribbon and various decorating material is greatly appreciated - or just come by and help Kira string them together!
