Openings: Electric Windows

Is that Ron English’s Ronald McDonald and camouflaged deer peeking out at us?  It’s just some of the sights seen at this year’s “Electric Windows”, an annual art and music festival that has already going on three years.  This year’s rendition officially opened last weekend in Beacon, New York with about 30 artists travelling to the small town about an hour north of New York City to do some live painting as well as hopefully bring some life and a fresh look some targeted buildings […]

Openings: “Beyond the Street” NY Book Launch @ Deitch Projects

That was the scene as AM attended the last public event at the legendary Deitch Projects and as expected, it was a blast!

Streets: Below Las Vegas with Logan Hicks

Inspired by Matt O’Brien’s book “Beneath the Neon – Life and Death in the Las Vegas Tunnels”, Logan Hicks (interviewed) recently took an interesting look at the massive system of drainage tunnels underneath the city of sin. Portions of the more than 300 miles of subterranean passageways are covered in graffiti and the feel of the place kind of reminds us of the underground work of Brazilian street artist Zezao. More pics after the jump.

Preview: Manifest Equality – Pop Up Show
