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:
A few month ago the idea that people would be prevented from traveling to the USA whilst holding the correct credentials would have sounded crazy.

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.

Banksy, who is thought to live in Bristol, posted a brilliant idea that could please “both those who miss the Colston statue and those who don’t.” “We drag him out the […]
Even after months of working from home, you’d be forgiven for thinking the whole experience still doesn’t quite feel…well, normal. In addition to all the obvious environmental changes of handling your 9 to 5 from your den or dining room table, the technological aids you didn’t realize you loved back at the office probably don’t […]
Running a small business drops a lot on to the plate of just one person. And between juggling a dozen tasks that need to get handled daily, it’s no surprise that there are a dozen more equally vital tasks that can just as easily go overlooked. While posting to social channels and making web posts […]
The importance of reading is well documented. About half of America’s unemployed between 16 and 21 years old are functionally illiterate. And there’s an almost direct line between how much you read and your earning potential, with the richest Americans three times more likely to read than those with a household income below $30,000. However, […]
