Earth Everyday Color GuardFlag making

Earth Everyday partner organization, Public Space One (PS1), will lead a community-wide, participatory art project as part of the Earth Everyday programming which encourages anyone to join the "Earth Everyday Color Guard" and reuse materials they already have to create a flag for Earth Everyday.  We are calling for the community to gather with us and fly their handmade Earth Everyday flags.  On Earth Day, flag-makers will have an opportunity to have their portrait taken and stand by their flag.  There will also be artists on site to help anyone who drops by to make a flag of their own.

Public Space One Color Guard Artists & Organizers

Bea Drysdale, Aljandra Alvarex, Hannah Givler, Cicelia Ross-Gotta, Kalmia Strong, John Engelbrecht, Tamara-Jo Schaapherder, and Sarah Furnish.  With additional support from Codi Josephson, David Dunlap, and hopefully you!
