This election season, Creative Time and Lower Manhattan Cultural Council invite you to vent, rage, recite poetry, or perform at the Freedom of Expression National Monument. This giant red megaphone mounted atop a flight of stairs, was originally created in 1984 by Laurie Hawkinson, John Malpede, and Erika Rothenberg for Creative Time's Art on the Beach. It is being represented to coincide with this years election season, and will be on view from August 17 through November 13 in downtown New York's Foley Square. The sculpture will give New Yorkers an opportunity to have a significant impact--both by supporting artistic voices and offering the public a platform for dialogue.
We are currently inviting artists of all disciplines to fulfill the work's provocative potential. The speakers and events will be scheduled on Tuesdays and Thursdays at lunchtime and 4:30pm throughout the fall. Please note, this artwork is open to the public, and we are able to offer promotion of the events on our website, but we cannot offer an honorarium.
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you have a performance that you would like considered for this project."
