While nonviolently freedom fighting in Philly, one of the many amazing things we encountered is this “Meta Painting; a collaboration of ideas and shared expression, within boundaries.”
As we know the the Sanders Campaign has inspired SO much art across the country (and globally no doubt). In this case, artist Scott Frias (sp?) from Baltimore is crowd sourcing the painting of this “Revolution/Resolution” sign. Though his methods are extremely precise and not intended for kids, *my* kids demonstrated enough enthusiasm and restraint that he generously allowed them to paint in one spot that had no constrictions. (I also got to paint a dove.)
Here is my favorite journalist from The Young Turks, Jimmy Dore, covering the rallies around Philly on the first day of the convention, including an interview about this Meta-Painting, which appears at minute 1:54. (Warning: There is a bagpipe involved, sorry.)

“Art is in us all.”
Vive la Revolution!
