Occupy Wall Street Holds Art Exhibit - On Wall Street
"Loft In The Red Zone" held an art exhibit inspired by OccupyWallStreet in the historic JP Morgan Building, next door to the New York Stock Exchange and Federal Hall. New York, United States. 8th October, 2011
Last night, Saturday October 8th, hundreds of visitors turned out at the historic JP Morgan Building on 23 Wall Street for a pop-up art exhibit titled "No Comment", which was inspired by #occupywallstreet. Organized by Loft In The Red Zone, a multi media art exhibition that honored the victim of 9/11 on the tenth anniversary, "No Comment" last night was success, despite the incredibly heavy NYPD turnout.
Featuring performance art, photography, painting, sculpture and multimedia works, "No Comment" was varied and interesting. Sample works included a dress made entirely of ammunition and soldiers' dog tags; body painting; signs and posters; soap bubbles; and burned dollar bills. Following the show, some works were auctioned off.
Next door to the New York Stock Exchange and Federal Hall, this area of lower Manhattan has been cordoned off and under heavy security since 9/11. Last night, the police presence was overwhelming, with dozens of NYPD scooters and dozens of paddywagons and other police vehicles. There was no incident, as far as this reporter saw.
