#bwtbt – Day 2 – First steps of ‘REBIRTH’ complete!!

This weekend, we gathered a special group of local community members to begin the process of Sheila Pree Bright’s installation piece, now entitled REBIRTH. These entrancing photographs feature women posing with the flag. Members of law enforcement, local artists, and community organizers mets in our office to virtually meet Sheila (via Zoom) and to discuss what the American flag means to them, the emotions that these images, and their subjects, evoked as they observed and worked on them…

Our crew learned techniques for “painting in” photographs and turned the flags pictured from B&W to red, white, and blue!

NEXT STEP: These photographs will be wheatpasted throughout downtown by #bwtbt 2020 producer, Keif Schleifer (@keifsen). Stay tuned!
