Art heeds the clarion call of the Occupy Wall Street movement at the AC Institute. This special show of posters is dedicated to the spirit evinced by the patriots at Liberty Square. Original, commissioned artwork will be shown beside authentic posters from the protest and will be on view for one week.

In addition to an opening there will be a poetry reading and performance (Date to be Announced.) The artists will then take their artwork to Liberty Square to demonstrate. This effort will be made into a film.

You can participate in this exhibition by bringing your poster to the AC Institute on Tuesday, December 6 and Wednesday, December 7 between 1 and 6pm. Submissions may be mailed to the AC Institute or emailed in PDF to info@artcurrents.org if received before Dec. 7.

The AC Institute reserves the right to disqualify submissions.
