"The Yard Sign Activation Project" Flux Projects Installation

  • Grass Area Broad St SW Atlanta, GA, 30303 United States

The Yard Sign Activation Project is presented in the form of a pop-up tented “campaign headquarters” to include printed banners with artwork by Carrie Mae Weems and Hank Willis Thomas. At various Atlanta locations prior to the exhibition (including the ELEVATE block party), the Atlanta community was invited to complete bandit signs (outdoor yard signs used in political campaigns) that read “Freedom of _________” and “Freedom from ___________.” The outdoor sculpture on Broad St. SW collectively emphasizes the importance of the individual voice, the power of many, and the significance of voting in a democratic society.
