on the day americans in positions of global hegemony hang up their six-shooters to celebrate their independence, come with us to the shores of london’s river thames where the story began nearly 400 years ago. that’s right folks: 1620- the year the mayflower set sail from this site loaded with puritan book-learning and religious fundamentalism, its cargo of convicts fleeing justice and the cavalier decadence of europe for the new world.
now in its second rapturous year, a band of artists – members of the coalition to a man – stands shoulder to shoulder to celebrate liberty though the power of their work.
so, pack up your meal deals and fast food buckets and come with us to this art-packed independence day extravaganza of revelry festivity and merriment.
I’m loving it.
