Description

The Anything to Say? public art project was conceived by journalist Charles Glass and actualized by Italian sculptor Davide Dormino. The concept is simple. Life size bronze statues of free speech heroes Edward Snowden, Chelsea Manning and Julian Assange stand on chairs. A fourth empty chair is for you to stand with them. The project was unveiled May 1st in Berlin. We want Berkeley, California - home of the Free Speech Movement - to be the first location in the United States to honor these three heroes. Depicted in Berlin before her transition, a new statue of Chelsea Manning, standing in her prison garb, will be caste for the project in Berkeley.
