Wall art touting VOTE. Though these messages have been on walls in
the Village and Soho for months, the message has more impact this
week as thousands line up for early voting all over the city.

to encourage others to vote

Thousands of New Yorkers turned up over the weekend to cast their vote early.
While many donned their masks with the word “Vote” on them, artists Wendy
Stum and Anthony Cappetto began to create chalk art on the paving stones of
Washington Square Park.
Commissioned by MTV, the chalk drawings were created in public spaces to encourage
New Yorkers to vote.
