FREEPORT, Maine (NEWS CENTER) – A unique humanitarian art project made a stop in Freeport on Sunday.
Flag for Hope is working to gather 5,000 handprints from people nationwide, creating an image of the American flag. Along with their handprints, participants were asked to go on camera explaining what patriotism means to them. The video and flag will be displayed at New York's Freedom Tower when the tour ends on Sept. 11.
Artist Marcus Antonio started the pop-up art project that is hitting home for many people.
"I think any project that gets Americans involved in their community and their flag and the patriotism of a good type is a good thing" said Elaine Green.
