‘No Comment’ from Wall Street

The Occupied Wall Street Journal

© 2011 TANIA FUENTEZ MEDIA

The recent pop-up art exhibit, “No Comment,” helped crystallize the depth and range of concerns rising out of the #Occupy Wall Street movement and captured the attention of independent and mainstream media outlets, including The New York Times. I was honored to be among participating artists and supporters of the 24-hour event presented by Loft in the Red Zone. It was an impressive show of creativity and solidarity at the cavernous, historic JP Morgan Building (ironically facing the New York Stock Exchange and Federal Hall National Memorial). Live performance art, multimedia installations, paintings, photography and more were inspired by #Occupy Wall Street, a leaderless resistance effort with international reach. Of course, police presence was thick but unnecessary … and a waste of taxpayers’ dollars in this case. Stay tuned to my blog for an upcoming photo gallery available on Flickr and my Web site.

In its fourth week, the Occupy Wall Street movement has multiplied and organized significantly, earning respect and high-profile support from unions, religious groups, environmentalists, celebrities, politicians and civil rights activists like the Rev. Al Sharpton, who broadcast his radio show Monday amid demonstrators camped out at Zuccotti Park in Lower Manhattan’s Liberty Plaza. Mayor Michael Bloomberg also announced protesters can stay at the site indefinitely as long as they stay within the law. For the doubters or curious, what’s happening at that makeshift campground cannot be contained or brushed off lightly. People deserve better, plain and simple. What’s happening now is long overdue. Career politicians and corporations may not change today or tomorrow, but they are paying attention to the groundswell. Something is happening.
