Two things-- I was fortunate to be asked to be a part of TPT's MNOrginal, see the segment on me and my work.
Below, read about Flag Services
I am working on Flag Services for South Minneapolis. My name is Peter Thompson and I am an artist in this neighborhood (16th Ave near 35th). I am doing an art project this summer to sew flags for empty flagpoles. Really it gives me an excuse to meet some neighbors and sew free flag portraits for them.
Note: Due to the difficulty in making contact with the owners of flag poles, I am opening up this opportunity to people without flagpoles who want to meet and have me make them a flag.
What I propose:
•We set up a time to meet and have a conversation
•I go back to my studio to design and sew a flag that is a portrait of you/your family.
•If needed-I do some maintenance (free!) on your flagpole, or help you install a flag holder
•If you can—attend the flag raising ceremony in late June 2016
•Early July—I hoist your flag on your flagpole and its yours to keep
•If you have questions or are ready to meet up and have me start making a flag, get in touch with me
