10 years ago we washed and painted American flags in front of the White House...Engaging in the way nationalist images can be re-purposed by activists and dissenters
we dress in medical scrubs and armed with a washboard and a can of paint, wewash the American flag as a call for reform
and paint it white, a blank canvas to re-claim the great American symbol in an act of artistic civil disobedience.
