Artists, drop what you're doing for a sec to hear this important announcement: Occupy Seattle needs you.

Movements call out for visuals. (Tahrir Square.)

Occupy Seattle has been marked by the giant, lovable hands of Neil Vandervloed (among other striking things Vandervloed captured on his blog).

But those tenderly crafted hands have all been confiscated or trashed—thrown into Dumpsters by the police and the parks department. The movement needs more visuals.

That was the consensus at yesterday's first official meeting of the OS A&E committee, which determined that though E is going strong (be there tomorrow night from 6 to 9 for the dance party with DJs Riz, Michael Manahan, and Ramiro)—A needs more love. The big art push will be for Saturday marches.

The best thing to do if you're an artist is to make signs with a blank space—"people like to personalize 'em," Vandervloed says—and drop them off at Occupy around 11:30 am on Saturdays so they can be distributed throughout the ranks. Organizers will have markers and duct tape. (No chalk, no banners—both are forbidden.) Go!
