day 327 – four wheatpaste posters in NYC

Go on a Mission: Take a big paint brush or roller, along with squirt bottle or 1.5 gallon plastic trash can nested in a messanger or book bag. Paint glue on the surface you want to stick the poster to, slap the poster into the glue, smooth the paper out, and then follow up with a final coat of glue over the top of the paper. Work quickly, without looking overly suspicious — teams of 2-3 people are optimal. Pick targets wisely: high visibility can be good but risky, near other posters may be safer and less likely to be torn down, think about who owns/maintains the space you’re pasting.”
