Visual Resistance made a banner for last weekend’s street party against the city’s plan to line the Williamsburg waterfront with luxury hi-rise apartment buildings. The banner went up in an empty billboard frame in a lot on N. 7th st. Our photolog has pictures of the banner going up
, as well as the the work-in-progress
stages. It took two days to paint the banner on a windy rooftop in Manhattan — the stencil was cut out of an abandoned window advertisement panel K. pulled from the trash. More pictures of the larger event are coming soon — Fred Askew also has a gallery
up on his site.
