Brushfire - Provisions Public Arts

Location:  Washington, DC
Project Description: 

BrushFire was an arts initiative showcasing key contemporary artists whose public projects engage crucial social issues such as immigration, the war in Iraq, food, sustainable energy, housing, the electoral process, the economy, health, and the environment. Taking place in highly visible public settings such as state fairs, urban centers, public parks and highly trafficked recreational areas around the United States, BrushFire aimed to enrich the environment for public discussion about the value of democracy in the crucial run-up to national elections in November, 2008.
