Mayday was a three-story building in Brooklyn, New York designated as the art hub for The People’s Climate March in 2014. I had the pleasure of running 10 different art spaces out of Mayday via a scheduling website I designed for this momentous event.
Word got to Uprose and NYC Environmental Justice Alliance that my skills were available to create 2 large-scale banners to be dropped in downtown New York City during the march.
During the deployment of these huge banners, there were vent issues that occurred due to how wide and large the banner spanned when they were dropped. After access to building maintenance, the banners were properly hung.
As an artist, there’s an indescribable feeling when you get up that big and your work is deployed prominently in one of the most recognizable skylines in the world and hear the roar of hundreds of thousands of people. I hope every artist gets to know those emotions and feelings at least once in their lifetime.
Many thanks to the people involved in all aspects of this banner drop. After 2 am you see who the real ones actually are…. much love and may thanks to my friends that helped pull this off. I am quite sure I owe you a few beers, come find me 🙂
