1000 Artists! Call for entry!‏

An army of artists interspersed among the enthusiastic crowds celebrating the Presidential Inauguration on January 21st on the Mall in Washington DC, all quietly making  art.  They have the focus of monks meditating, simply being present, reflecting, and innovating. 
Some artists are sculpting, drawing and painting while others are making wild knittings and creating collages. A group of people are engaged in a slow meditative dance and a man is pulling silk screen prints which he hands out on the spot. These art-makers are all wearing white jump suits and orange hats, helping to make art-making visible and central to our national values and identity at this major ritual and celebration.
