The University of South Florida Contemporary Art Museum (USFCAM) is proud to be a participating institution in Pledges of Allegiance, a nationwide, year-long public art project featuring a serialized commission of flags created by acclaimed artists and presented by New York-based public art nonprofit Creative Time.

USF Contemporary Art Museum

Throughout the year, USFCAM will mount a different artist-designed flag each month in coordination with Creative Time’s national public art initiative. Each flag embodies art’s ability to channel political passion, providing a symbol of allegiance around which to unite, as well as a call-to-action for institutions nationwide to raise upcoming Pledges of Allegiance flags in solidarity. Each flag will also be flown at the Creative Time headquarters at 59 E 4th Street in New York, as well as at an expanding list of cultural institutions including The Queens Museum, Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, and the 21c Museum Hotel in Durham, North Carolina.

The USF Contemporary Art Museum is seeking fiscal support for this unique public art project, which aims to inspire a sense of community, and begins to articulate the urgent response our political moment demands. The art museum on the university campus is an ideal site to raise these symbolic flags in an effort to raise awareness of contemporary cultural issues, initiate dialogue and address critical, global, political and social concerns in a creative and accessible way.

Participating artists in Pledges of Allegiance include Tania Bruguera, Alex Da Corte, Jeremy Deller, LaToya Ruby Frazier, Ann Hamilton, Robert Longo, Josephine Meckseper, Marilyn Minter, Vik Muniz, Jayson Musson, Ahmet Ögüt, Yoko Ono, Trevor Paglen, Pedro Reyes, Rirkrit Tiravanija, and Nari Ward.

Pledges of Allegiance

USFCAM organizes and presents significant and investigative exhibitions of contemporary art from Florida, the United States and around the world. Serving as a teaching laboratory, USFCAM’s curatorial and socially engaged initiatives and educational programs are designed to present the students, faculty and community with current issues of contemporary art practice, and to explore the role of the arts in society.

Your contributions to the Pledges of Allegiance campaign will directly fund the production costs and loan fees associated with bringing the project to the Tampa campus. In addition, donated funds will support additional education and community engagement initiatives for the project.

Community makes an impact - please consider sharing this opportunity to support this innovative public art campaign with your family, friends and colleagues via email and through yoursocial media channels.

On behalf of the USF Contemporary Art Museum, we thank you for your support and solidarity in contributing to this national campaign to bring innovative and critically important public art to the USF campus.

Pledges of Allegiance was originally conceived by Alix Browne and developed in collaboration with Cian Browne, Fabienne Stephan and Opening Ceremony.
