Art Trio Sticks It to Opponents and Supporters of Park51

Scattered around the city and within blocks of the WTC site are starkly designed posters that encourage the public to weigh in on the ‘Ground Zero Mosque’ – ‘Islamic Community Center’ debate that has died down considerably since 9/11, but is ready to flare back up at a moment’s notice.

It was created by an art trio calling itself Concerned New Yorkers and they have both a mission, to foster dialogue, and a website documenting the various missives that have appeared. What I like most about the project is that it not only lets both sides voice their opinions, but it also turns them all into vandals for writing on the illegally sanctioned notices in the first place. Anyway, Hyper Allergic caught up with the trio and asked them a few questions about the highly interactive “intervention.” (Photo: ANIMALNewYork)
