Been doing any summer reading?

As mercenary Baynor holds the knife to the poor man’s throat, his boss starts to twitch nervously at the sound of many footsteps coming up the alley. “Maybe we shouldn’t kill in broad daylight. Maybe it’s better to do it like regular – in the boardroom…” ~ B.P. Dick, from “Confessions of a Corporate Hitman”

Brooklyn-Street-Art-JR-Ted-PrizWEBCongratulations JR !

There is an idea worth spreading! JR, Street Artist, is the 2011 recipient of the TED prize:

“JR creates what might be called “pervasive art.” Working with a team of volunteers in various urban environments, he mounts enormous black-and-white photo canvases that spread on the buildings of the slums around Paris, on the walls in the Middle East, on broken bridges in Africa, and across the favelas of Brazil. These images become part of the local landscape and capture people’s attention and imagination around the world.”

Read more on the TED site and watch this gorgeous and moving video testifying to gutsy proactive engagement with the world and the power of the creative spirit that transcends silly art school armchair criticism.

Brooklyn Artist Tara McPherson Prepares for Show at Jonathan Levine


To know her is to love her. Hell, we don’t even know her but still love her from afar… as her reputation as an artist and a fine person percolates around here in Brooklyn. Also, what a great role model for girls and young women who want to make their life their art and their art their life.  Check out preview pics over at Arrested Motion.

Beautiful Losers

Recently released in it’s entirety, this influential and beautiful film is now available to you here for free. It’s the story of a group of artist kids on Manhattan’s Lower East Side who encouraged each other to continue to experiment and grow – in only the germinating way that NYC can do it. We know how important community is for artists, and thankfully New York is still a fertile soil for discovery and innovation.
