Street artist ry/Olympia sent in the following call to action for Greenpoint, Brooklyn residents to help him out with his latest project.
Folks in Brooklyn/NYC,
Please help me pull off an audacious street art project and surprise my girlfriend with a unique birthday gift. My girlfriend moved to Connecticut from Greenpoint last year. She misses it terribly, and constantly pines for the days spent with friends in the neighborhood. For her birthday this year, I have installed a life-sized board of the Birthday Girl at Franklin Ave and Noble Street. I am asking anyone who can to go to Greenpoint and photograph yourself with the Birthday Girl, and then, email or pix message the photo to firstname.lastname@example.org. Soon she will have an entire album of images of herself and many, many friends partying in Greenpoint! I will also be uploading all images to my flickr account, so all can watch as the piece progresses.
I do not know how long the Birthday Girl will be up. It’s a pretty big piece, just begging to be torn down.
Thanks for your help. You’re going to make this birthday one she’ll never forget!
If you take a photo, post a link in the comments so everyone can see.
