Oakland Going Inside Out

Oakland looks different today. The first of many large protester portraits were mounted over the weekend on buildings downtown as part of an informal/guerilla urban exhibition that will use the entire City as a canvas (InsideOut/OccupyOakland). Ten images were placed on a wall above a car lot and two 25' images were placed on the roof. Dozens more will be placed on walls, roofs, smokestacks, windows, garage doors, and in alleys in coming weeks. In a powerful way, this effort helps dispel MSM myths about who Occupy is and why they are speaking up.

Those who have camped, walked, marched, and sacrificed have inspired this response by this young group. It is an important example of how Occupy can grow, change, evolve, gain strength, and inspire others. The world has its eyes on Oakland and other Occupy sites and this deserves high visibility and support from those interested in the message and in diverse, effective expression. It deserves DU support and help...please visit the sites and: comment, spread links, 'like' the facebook page, view the videos and portrait statements, go view the portraits if you're local, and if you can support the project through kickstarter. More portraits will go up and the project will become larger only if there is funding. Help make it happen!
