Nothing like this has ever been done before.

A Thousand Artists: A Public Art-Making Installation

On Monday, January 21, 2013 the Presidential Inauguration will be proceeding in Washington DC, and right nearby there will be legions of people, A Thousand Artists in white jump suits and orange hats quietly making art, no matter who is president and no matter what the weather is.

These artists will have the focus of monks meditating. They will neither be attacking or defending, they will simply be present: reflecting, innovating and creating.

Why:

    If every American made art of some kind for at least five minutes a day, Americans would become more reflective and innovative and our political climate would change for the better.
    What we do at the inauguration sets the tone for the next four years. We are prioritizing  creativity, democracy and open non-judgmental communication across differences with no partisan political motivation to our presence.
