SABER’s Sky Art Over New York City

Yesterday afternoon, the New York City sky was the canvas for SABER’s latest art project, “#DefendTheArts.” The out-spoken SABER employed five sky writers to deliver a series of messages to the (mostly unaware) 8+ million residents of the Big Apple. The messages were to serve as an attack on the government and specifically, Mitt Romney, for his plans to end funding for important arts programs such as National Endowment for the Arts (NEA), National Public Radio (NPR) and Public Broadcasting System (PBS).

SABER explained that people in creative fields (artists, actors, poets, etc.) are in many ways fueling the economy so the idea of cutting funding to their vital programs is absurd. The artist included many messages, including shout-outs to a slew of artists that have made enormous impacts on society – like Keith Haring.

GJ Project was in Soho at the time and was able to capture some images from our experience in SABER’s New York City takeover.

#OccupyWallStreet & #StreetArt were among the many messages in the sky that related to Social Media. SABER encouraged spectators to send messages and photos to his twitter account, @SABER.
