Signs of Solidarity, 97 Estoria, Atlanta, GA
Signs of Solidarity is an ongoing, Philadelphia-based public art project in protest of hate and divisiveness. I created a banner to represent the communities of individuals that are under-represented in the discussion surrounding affordable housing. Many neighborhoods within competitive markets in Atlanta are forcing its residents out in order to build high-rise condominiums.
The banner corresponded with the local elections that in turn elected officials that could change the outcome of said communities.
The first phase of Signs of Solidarity project took place on January 20th, 2017 and saw dozens of buildings across the cities of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and Atlanta, Georgia drop large, artist-made banners displaying messages of love and inclusivity to stand in opposition to hate and in protest of any and all that embolden divisiveness.
We’re a better city because of our love and inclusivity.
