PGCEA Art Build Final from MTEA Union on Vimeo.
Here is a video by Joe Brusky documenting the recent PGCEA (Prince George County Education Association) art build in Maryland. PGCEA and other teacher unions in Maryland are preparing for a march in Annapolis on March 11th for public education justice. March for Our Students expects to see upwards of 100,000 people in the streets of Annapolis. Artists were helping out with the banners, picket signs, patches, and signs before hand. Paul Kjelland (Justseeds), Nicolas Lampert (Justseeds), Kim Cosier, Claudio Martinez, and Joe Brusky helped to coordinate the art build with PGCEA, and local D.C. and Baltimore artists created some of the key graphics. Jennifer White-Johnson and Vy Vu collaborated on a picket sign design and a banner design and César Maxit designed a banner. Also, Los Angeles-based artist Nisha Sembi – who had created a key image for the UTLA movement – designed a picket sign for the Maryland teachers. Kim Cosier designed a parachute banner and Nicolas Lampert designed the second parachute banner, along with some text-based banners. The art build was an empowering weekend of solidarity and community building. Much respect to the many students, teachers, union organizers, parents, and community members who worked long hours on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday to ensure that PGCEA’s message will be seen in the streets of Annapolis on March 11th. Stand with Maryland teachers as they stand up for their students!
