PLEASE POST AND/OR DISTRIBUTE

Calling all artists! We want your work for a national
street art campaign. SAW (Street Art Workers) is a
grass-roots network of print makers, graffiti writers,
stencil artists and painters. We make public art and
put it up across the US. In 2002 we plastered the
walls of 8 cities with work against the Prison
Industrial Complex, and in 2003 we're looking for your
visions for the future.

Do you envision a world broken down under the weight
of capitalism, gray smog-filled skies hanging over the
even grayer lives of the downtrodden & oppressed? Or
do you still hold out hope for a victory for the
forces of liberty & equality?

Many folks excel at criticizing the existing order,
but seldom really articulate what they want. Part of
this only makes sense, none of us will ever have it
all figured out, but as we commit ourselves to the
struggle for a better world, we're forced to define
what that world might look like. We want to put these
thoughts out on the streets to inspire people to
struggle for something more.

Send us multiple copies of your artwork - posters or
stickers, stencils or screen-prints, xerox, etc. -
before 3/1/03. We will collate the art and distribute
it through the SAW network during spring/summer 2003.
WE ALSO NEED PEOPLE TO SPRAY, PASTE & OTHERWISE
DISTRIBUTE WORK IN THEIR TOWNS. If you want to send us
work or if you just want to help out, get in touch.
