For our latest mission, we constructed a custom wooden lectern with a megaphone holster and an attached sign that read, “Declare Your Love.” The lectern was placed at the corner of 6th Avenue and 42nd Street at the entrance to Bryant Park and then left alone. We wanted to see what would happen if New Yorkers were given the opportunity to amplify their voices and declare their love.
Enjoy the video first and then go behind the scenes with our mission report and photos.
2016 has been a rough year. It felt like time to dust off our old podium (which has been taking up quite a bit of space in my son’s already tiny bedroom.)
I love you. I’m crazy about you.
I hope you feel the same about me, but it doesn’t really matter. I love you.”
