OCCUPY THE ART WORLD
by Barbara Pollack
The Smithsonian Institution, the New-York Historical Society, the Museum of Jewish Heritage and other cultural repositories are collecting Occupy Wall Street. That is, curators and archivists have been picking up posters, buttons, broadsheets and other ephemera from Zuccotti Park and other OWS sites around the country. OWS has even set up an archive committee to preserve its own history.
