Seattle Tea Party PatriotsI'll have to see if I have any pics that might be of interest.
The University of Washington Library is opening an exhibit on social movements in Seattle and they would like to include the tea party movement! This is great opportunity because our movement will be included in the history and our story will be told by us, instead of our opposition. If you attended the very first rally ("Porkulus") on President's Day, February 16, 2009, or the second protest on February 27, 2009 at Westlake Park in downtown Seattle, please contact me if you have any of the following:
*Costume pieces (i.e. pig noses, Uncle Sam hats, etc.)
See this description from the UW Library of what they are looking for:
"Photos are great -- most of what we have up in the other cases are photos (laying flat on shelves, sometimes scattered in piles scrapbook-style), posters, books (which we can prop up slightly on stands), and artifacts. Costume pieces (YES, pig noses!), buttons, signs, etc. are good. This will form a lively companion piece to some of the WTO stuff on display, which includes one of the now-infamous Sea Tortoise costumes. We can also take screen shots of videos and use "pull quotes" from online articles."
If you have any of these items and you are willing to share them for the purpose of this exhibit, please email me AS SOON AS POSSIBLE! They are on a very, very tight deadline for this project, so we need to turn all items in ASAP. Please email keli at firstname.lastname@example.org and include EXHIBIT in the subject line so that she is sure to see the email right away!!
Thank you so much!!
