Undivided: Dewey Square Pop-up Art Show
Sunday, November 6, 2011
Inspired by Occupy Boston/Occupy Wall St.
The purpose of the exhibition is to provide an artistic platform to inspire an open dialog about the economic divide in this country, the democratic process as an organizing tool, and the diverse communities that make up the 99%. It is our hope to create an environment where a diverse community of people can gather and begin to dissect the issues and formulate solutions.
The show will be Sunday, November 6th from 1p-4p in Dewey Square at the site of Occupy Boston. Limitations of the space: This will be an outdoor venue at the Dewey Square Occupation site, artists must provide their own easels or tables to display work, we do not recommend fragile pieces. Please be prepared to stay at the site during the duration of the Pop-up Art Show. Alternative Rain Date TBD if needed.
The Dewey Square Pop-up Art Show Committee is looking for art that is inspired by the following statements:
This is what democracy looks like.
We are the 99%.
This is what economic justice/injustice looks like.
Art format can include: Visual arts such as painting, photography, mixed media, sculpture, illustration, signs, and drawings. Performance Art such as spoken word, 3 minute plays or performance pieces, music, or dance.
All are encouraged to visit the sign making tent for access to materials such cardboard, markers, paint, and paper. If you are interested in showing work, have questions, or want more info please email firstname.lastname@example.org. Follow us on twitter @occupybostonart
The Occupy movement has gone to all 7 continents but it hasn’t quite reached space yet. So until then, if you happen to be over at #OccupyMaine in Portland, the SPACE Gallery has an Occupy exhibit going on right now, asking for submissions of “statements, slogans, drawings, hopes for the future, concerns, visions, epiphanies, pleas, and more.”
[Edit:] Submissions accepted from Monday 10.17.2011 through Tuesday 11.01.2011

It moves my heart to see your awakened faces;
the look of “aha!”
shining, finally, in
wide open eyes.
Yes, we are the 99%
all of us
refusing to forget
no matter, in our hunger, what crumbs
are dropped by
The world we want is on the way; Arundhati
and now we
hearing her breathing.
That world we want is Us; united; already moving
