464 Votes = Yes | 68 Votes = No

Selected Participant Responses:

It should ring according to the moon cycle.

Ring the bell on the morning of a voting day as a reminder to vote!

When there is an art opening, ring the bell.

The bell should ring every time someone gives any amount of money to the homeless.

Ring the bell every time an animal is adopted from the Chittenden County Humane Society.

Have water mist around the bell and ring it when the sun is in position to make a rainbow.

It should warn if zombies attack, have regular Zombie drills (Once a month @ random).

It should ring again so that people do not forget what a real bell sounds like.

It should be replaced with a bubble machine.

Just ring the damn bell!


The Firehouse Bell Project was at the Burlington City Arts Center in Burlington, VT in the spring of 2013
and as part of the exhibit User Required curated by DJ Hellerman.
