#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

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.

The Spark - http://www.projectxixax.com/
What is it? "The Spark" was a projection project designed to protest the theft of taxpayer money by the banks and to raise awareness of the ability to use art and poetry in public spaces in reliance on the First Amendment freedoms. An often heard question, even from Americans while projecting was "do you have a permit," to which I readily responded, "Yes, the First Amendment."
After a hiatus to reassess the projected art and words, Project Xixax is back and will be helping to promote joy and the refusal of austerity and the hateful and boring policies of both republicans and democrats. It’s Time to Dance on the graveyard of wall street!
Where can I see it? On the corner of Bleeker and Lafayette, 8:30 to 10:30 pm.
How can I help? Come watch, and document!

A public screening of two silent films
What is this? Two silent films, about economic injustice and freedom of expression, will project in large size on the side of a building. “A Plumber’s Tale” is a silent, 2D, hand-drawn animation about a rags to riches plumber named, Phil.  ”WE HAVE THE RIGHT TO PEACEFULLY PROTEST” is an experimental documentary about the 2007 Prop. 8 protests in California.
Where can I see it? On the corner of Bleeker and Lafayette, 8:30 to 10:30 pm.
