Black Lives Matter Is Going To Figment NYC

Hey again bloggers or whoever could be reading this blog.  And so I guess it's been a while since I last attempted to sign into this Occupy Art blog, as I only find myself signing into this blog whenever I can drum up one of those Occupy Art or Occupy Art related shows in the New York City area, which seems to be every once in a blue moon according to those posts on this blog. And so on this day finds itself as Occupy Wall Street Day one thousand and something. And Occupy Wall Street is still moving fast. And last year Occupy Art Went To Figment NYC 2014, and so this year it happens to be "Black Lives Matter Art Show Is Going To Figment NYC".  And in case you have been stuck in the stone age or hiding out under a rock and haven't heard, Black Lives Matter has something to do with all things police brutality and black people, and all things protest and beyond, or something like that. And so that Facebook event invite that I created reads as follows:

Hi everyone,

FIGMENT NYC is happening again this year and I am happy to hear that my Black Lives Matter Art Show has been accepted for the Figment NYC 2015 weekend, June 6th-7th @ Governors Island. Looking forward. Please come to my Black Lives Matter Art Show if you are there.

The Black Lives Matter Art Show invites you to create your own art posters from art materials and supplies that will be available for everyone. Participants are encouraged to talk about the Black Lives Matter movement as well as the artwork they have created through the open mic.

Black Lives Matter Art Show is inspired by the Black Lives Matter movement to discuss, expand scope, perspective and inspiration towards an ongoing series of future culture jams and events around this theme and time

Check FIGMENT's website for updated details on project locations and schedules.

FIGMENT is a free participatory art event that is 100% volunteer-powered. FIGMENT NYC takes place on June 6-7, with our minigolf course, treehouse, pavilion, and summer-long sculpture programs on Governors Island all summer long!

Black Lives Matter. Occupy Art. Occupy Wall Street Worldwide.

Have a great Occupy Art day and more.
