#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

The Naturalization Service


What is it? The Naturalization Service is offering free (notarized?) re-birth certificates on May Day 2012. Re-birth certificates are artworks and documents affirming world citizenry, global solidarity, and the personal right to freedom and choice.


Where can I see it? In Bryant Park, from 10am-2pm

How can I help? We could use a real notary!  Email marysghost at gmail.com if you know one who wants to help!

Crush the musical - http://intothegravel.com/
What is it? A two-act musical play, titled “Crush.”  ”Crush” is a nightmare within a limbo that carries 8 characters from one trap to the next. It is set in the 1950s pinpointing domestic relationships and entrapment in home life. It’s also a lot about panic and its influences. 
Where can I see it? In Bryant Park, 12:30 - 1:00.

How can I help? We could use someone to film the performance!

Free art from Molly Crabapple
What is it? Free art prints from the archives of Molly Crabapple, an NYC artist who has contributed enormous amounts to several Occupy projects, including the iconic MayDay General Strike poster above.  Her new series, The Shell Game, is a year-long, crowdsourced project to create an art show about the world financial collapse, and the people who have risen up in protest against it.
Where can I see it? Part of the Free Store in Bryant Park, 11am-2pm or until supplies run out.
How can I help? Take my stuff. Please.
