Line of Sand
Pioneer Courthouse Square Portland, Oregon January 15, 1991
In 1991 George W. Bush set January 15th as the deadline for Iraq to withdraw from Kuwait, Americans knew they would wake up to war, this was Wysong's response. It appeared at the first light of the morning of January 15, 1991.
Statement: Art on the streets. Art of our time. Art whose purpose is to embody the shifting insubstantiality of boundaries; art that is created to be destroyed. A Line of Sand is a collaborative installation. Artists will place the work and the citizens will activate it by walking through the Square and erasing it.
