Saber – #DefendTheArts Over the New York City Skyline | FRANK 151

September 25 2012 . 06:15pm

It seemed almost overly ambitious, but last Sunday artist Saber made good on his promise to dispatch a fleet of skywriting jets over a major American City. That major American city was New York.

For approximately one hour on Sunday, September 23rd, a fleet of five synchronized jets created words and phrases visible over greater NYC. Saber’s campaign was meant to raise awareness about art-program cuts that would most likely take place in a Mitt Romney administration.

This is footage from Sunday’s campaign shot at various locations, complete with Saber speaking about what it took, and how it felt, to “get up” that big.
