They’re calling it the Vacant Lot Flag Project, and you’re invited to make your own flag and fly it for all to see on Friday (August 6) from 2pm-dusk at 43 Catherine Street in Albany.
Sponsored by We Are Architects, Grand Street Community Arts and the City of Albany, the Vacant Lot Flag Project is a free, one-day, outdoor, art happening in which all participants are invited to create a flag for themselves, their community or a cause.
In conjunction with Albany’s First Friday arts walk, everyone is encouraged to create their own unique flag utilizing materials that will be provided – including paint, markers, tape, pre-assembled flags in various sizes and colors, and a plethora of stencils designed by We Are Architects. Participants may also use their own materials.
After each flag is completed, they will be collected and exhibited in the lot until late October.
