Vote with your gum

I really wish I had a pack of Juicy Fruit when I encountered 'Gum Election' on the streets of SoHo during the 2012 election.

This clever, short-lived street art project encouraged people to keep their cities clean while reminding them to vote on election day.

Volunteers downloaded the posters, wheatpasted them to the walls of their fair cities and sent in photos of their constituents 'votes'. The project extended voting (with gum) beyond national borders. During the election of the 45th president of the United States - Gum Election found fans as far afield as Canada and Belgium.

We hope the projects' artists, Stefan Haverkamp,  James Cooper and Hedvig Astrom are working up a poster of Hillary v. Trump for the fall (so that we don't have to)!

We have a small army ready to plaster them all over New York City, Detroit,  Portland, and maybe Mexico City.
