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 Flag Burst -http://www.indiegogo.com/maydayflags

What is it? Beginnig in May, people will be hanging “99% Occupy” flags out their windows. On every block, on every street people will be able to see that the movement for economic justice is alive and well and only growing bigger.

The flags are also an outreach tool. When we give out flags, it will be combined with an outreach booklet that explains why we occupy. The booklet will also say, “If you appreciated getting this flag, please make a contribution to our flag outreach campaign so we can give a flag and booklet to someone else, just as someone contributed so that we could give this flag to you.”

Where can I see it? Madison square park at 11 AM, and in windows all over NYC!
