Street artist Plastic Jesus recruited artists to affix signs at construction sites and fenced-off lots around the country that say "Lot Reserved for: Future Interment Camp." Download and print your own here.
Plastic Jesus posted about the project on their home page:

Each sign has a QR code lower right for more information about the project. Hyperallergic has a great gallery of the signs in the wild, including one across from Trump Tower in Chicago.
