The public art project "Twenty-Twelve Flags" will be part of the Summer Festival of the Arts.
Since 2012 is an election year, inspiring the spirit of democracy, artists are invited to incorporate their idea of a flag design to be displayed during the event on July 7-8 at Youngstown State University. Artists are asked to come up with an original design for a flag that best promotes themselves, their family crest, a state, country, school, university, feelings, business/organization etc.
The format is a 2-foot-by-3-foot canvas, vertically oriented. Artists are encouraged to use recycled or repurposed materials. The canvas will be supplied by Art Youngstown, Inc., and can be picked up between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m. today and Friday at Bliss Hall. Artists must be age 16 or older. There is no cost to participate, but artists must preregister by calling Lori Factor at 330-941-3105 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
