Mandela art event in NYC seeks public's quotes
NEW YORK (AP) - The public is invited to share their own inspirational quotes at a Times Square event tied to a video installation of Nelson Mandela's speeches.
Organizers say the leader's grandsons, Kweku (KWAY'-koo) and Ndaba (nehn-DAH'-bah) Mandela, will attend the late-night event in New York City. It starts at 11:15 p.m. Friday.
It's an audience-participation moment for a 3-minute video that's being shown all month, just before midnight.
People can write down their quotes. Then they can share the quotes with other participants or donate them to a digital gallery called Midnight Moment.
Mandela was South Africa's first black president from 1994 to 1999. He turns 95 in July.
The project is a collaboration of Times Square Arts, the Tribeca Film Institute and the Nelson Mandela Foundation.
