Last Wednesday, Creative Time, alongside eleven other arts organizations across the U.S., raised the latest flag in their Pledges of Allegiance series—this one by Ann Hamilton. Entitled Fly Togetherthe flag features an image drawn from early childhood education books: two songbirds holding cloth between their beaks. The piece explores the potential made possible through our own mutual cooperation, and Hamilton says that to carry the cloth, the birds “must hold with gentleness and tenacity. They must work and fly together.”
