On-site Happenings

From haute couture to picnicware, the American Flag  one of the most recognizable and ubiquitous branding symbols world wide. In the spirit of artist's  multiples "shops" like Barbara Kulicki and Marian Goodman's "Betsy Ross Flag and Banner Company" 1961 and Dread Scott and Kyle Goen's United We Stand Stand, "Flag Swag" will include an array of affordable limited edition multiples by artists: stickers, flair, zines to flags and fashion accessories, t-shirts  and much more.

A companion concept project to BROAD STRIPES and BRIGHT STARS, FLAG SWAG invites artists and designers to offer special edition multiples for sale at the Ely Center of Contemporary Art in a pop-up store on site and online.
