Times Square Arts Seeks To Empower With Word on the Streets

In partnership with House of Trees, Times Square Arts presents Word on the Street, a public art commission of political and poetic banners created by female artists and writers that speak directly to the urgent, timeless concerns of the individual, the community, and the requirements of citizenry. The exhibition will appear on street pole banners and Bigbelly solar-powered trash and recycling receptacles in Times Square until February 2018.

Word on the Street is an ongoing text-based public art initiative produced by artist collective House of Trees, consisting of original banners and signage designed by renowned female international artists in collaboration with female refugee fabricators based in Texas. Artists and writers include Anne Carson + Amy Khoshbin, Carrie Mae Weems, and Wangechi Mutu. The ongoing series will continue with new notable female artists premiering original artwork for Times Square signage in the spring of 2018.

Originally created from felt as wearable protest expressions during the Women’s March, the Word on the Street banners and signage consist of a series of poetic political works that speak directly to the moment. The project’s deployment throughout Times Square seeks to create a network of visually disseminated texts that help articulate, empower, and support positive responses to the ever-changing social and political landscape.

On September 7th from 12pm-1pm & 6pm-9pm, Times Square Arts and artist Amy Khoshbin invite New Yorkers and Times Square visitors to Workshop on the Street, where they will create their own wearable gear with phrases and iconography made from colorful felt in the form of banners, signs, sashes, capes, or badges at the Broadway Plaza between 43rd & 44th Streets. This group is encouraged to exhibit their signs around Times Square and transform these art objects into protest materials for upcoming demonstrations or to wear simply as a celebration of free speech. Workshop on the Street engages the community in social action and encourages a physical artistic response alongside the Word on the Street banners.
