This summer, Creative Time launched the program, Pledges of Allegiance, with sixteen artists creating sixteen flags portraying a cause worth fighting for. The first in the series, hoisted above the Creative Time Headquarters in June, was the flag entitled RESIST by artist, Marilyn Mintner, with the same flag also flying above 67 Hudson Street (facing the Freedom Tower) and on the campus at the University of South Florida’s Contemporary Art Museum in Tampa. In July, the flag Dignity Has No Nationality by artist Tania Bruguera is flying at the same three locations, and August will bring a new flag.
The project hopes to advance discussion on targeted issues of particular concern in our current political climate. Share your photos each month with the hashtag #PledgesOfAllegiance, or by tagging @CreativeTimeNYC.
