Coinciding with the exhibition programs at BRS/PS and Under the Bridge, each flag will be exhibited for the duration of the shows for a period of 6 to 8 weeks with Summer Schedule TBD.

"The Merriam-Webster Dictionary definition of a flag: A piece of cloth with a special design that is used as an emblem or for signaling. An object intended to give public notice or warning. To direct or notify by a movement or gesture."
- William Cordova

Most flags no matter how abstract. colorful, formal, or geometric often prompt emotional reactions, bring up memories, and provoke dialogue. The concept of a flag is similar in many ways, to that of any and all visual art. The Flag Project explores and illuminates the effective use of visual tools by inviting South Florida artists to design flags as a way to engage society in a public space. Possibly bridging closer the way we define abstraction, meaning, and conceptualism.

The design for this Flag is based on a 'combination of historical, iconic, and symbolic flags that are still influencing today's society' stated Minto-Strouse
