The Flag for Hope is touring across 60 U.S. cities this summer to gather handprints, and Charleston is on the list. The project is headed by artist Marcos Antonio, and consists of a canvas depicting the American flag, on which local residents are able to paint hand impressions.Only the first 100 visitors will be able to participate in this art project (the project will total approximately 5,000 people), so get there early. The project is supposed to signify freedom, patriotism, unity, and love, and will be exhibited in a museum when it's completed on 9/11 with survivors and heroes from the tragedy that struck the nation on the same day. The event will be taking place at Folly Fishing Pier from 12-2 p.m. and at James Island County Park from 4-6 p.m. the same day.
