Australian artist Jon Campbell has brought his first public art project to the U.S. It’s called “Four Letter Words For Stamford” and it features more than 50 flags and banners mounted throughout the city.

A ribbon cutting ceremony took place Thursday to celebrate the project, which is being presented by Franklin Street Works. The flags and banners will be on display at the city’s parks, high schools, and downtown area until Flag Day on June 14.

Campbell also incorporates music into his work, performing a song at Thursday’s opening to go a long with one of his flags.

The outdoor flag project is part of Franklin Street Works' Spring 2015 exhibition, “It’s gonna take a lotta love,” a group show which will be on view at the Gallery through May 24. Campbell will be doing an artist talk and Q&A at the gallery on March 28 from 4 to 6 pm.
