Occupy Boston’s Creative And Subversive Arts (CASA) working group hosted Steve Lambert on April 28. Lambert is the artist who created the “Capitalism Works for Me” sign currently found in Davis Square. Lambert’s work includes The New York Times Special Edition produced with the Yes Men and many other groups in 2008 and distributed in cities across the US carrying headlines such as “Iraq War Ends,” “Maximum Wage Law Passed” and “All Public Universities to Be Free.”
This event was an opportunity for Lambert and the greater Occupy community to connect over questions of messaging, humor, culture jamming, and creative activism as the movement heads into the coming seasons. Lambert, along with painter Josh Luke, produced signs for many of the tents in the Dewey Square occupation in October 2011.
