Jetsonorama in Hotchkiss : 14 From 2014

Jetsonorama in Hotchkiss : 14 From 2014

Happy Holidays to all of you charming and sparkling BSA readers!
It’s been a raucous sleigh ride with you and we thank everyone most sincerely for your support and participation this year. A sort of tradition for us at the end of this December we are marking the year with “14 from 2014”. We asked photographers and curators from various perspectives of street culture to share a gem with all of us that means something to them. Join us as we collectively say goodbye and thank you to ’14.
Jetsonorama is a regular contributor to BSA and a cultural curator in the desert of Arizona and on the Navajo Reservation with his “Painted Desert Project”. For a few consecutive years he has been inviting Street Artists to create contextual pieces that relate to the culture and history of the community, and fostering an exchange – a few of his many talents. Additionally, he is a photography-based street artist himself, using his portraits in unconventional ways to bring a dynamism to cityscapes and rural settings with local personalities in a way that has earned him respect from both artists and the community. We asked Jetsonorama to share his favorite shot of 2014 and, no surprise, it combines and celebrates those constituencies as well. 

“This photo is by Nellie Higgenbotham of a performance by Illumicirque in front of an installation I did on Friday, June 13th on an old church now converted into a church of art in Hotchkiss, Colorado (population 923). It’s the friendliest town on the western slope!”
