A Thought About Art and Protest, or Tonight at Zuccotti Park

I was heartbroken to find the pool of signs at Zuccatti Park gone, yes, they are currently on display at No Comment, the OWS-affiliated art exhibit, but there was something beautiful in that space for art making and signage that made the whole square more human. There are still some other signs, like the one below, to behold but the pond of peoples’ words was my favorite part. Art and protest should never be separated.
