KVUE – An Austin-based advertising company is reportedly behind the design of an art display of 200,000 US flags on the National Mall in Washington, DC for the 46th President’s inauguration. It is called the “Field of Flags”.
According to Pollstar, a trade magazine for the concert industry, C3 Concerts, a company known for running the ACL festival, worked with the Presidential Inaugural Committee on the public art exhibition, which features Americans who do not follow up to the opening events Washington can travel.
The flag display is part of the America United theme of the Presidential Inaugural Committee, which includes a wreath-laying ceremony at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier in Arlington National Cemetery.
“This inauguration marks a new chapter for the American people – one of healing, unification, coming together, a united America,” said Tony Allen, CEO of the PIC, in a statement. “It is time to turn the page of this era of division. The opening activities will reflect our common values and remind us that we are stronger together than apart, as our motto “e pluribus unum” reminds us – of many, of one. ”
When you see these 200,000 flags during the #BidenHarrisInauguration, you see a piece of Texas!
