We recently ran across this photomontage by Barbara Morgan depicting media giant William Randolph Hearst extending his tentacles over the New York populace and it stopped us in our tracks. Check out this pre-photoshop image depicting one of the most powerful newspaper men from the twentieth century taking his grasp on the minds of the public.

Saber: #DefendTheArts Over the New York City Video

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, September 25, 2012
As we announced on the site this past week, former Juxtapoz cover artist SABER was going to take to the skies (much like he did in protest to the public art moratorium in LA last year) to protest Mitt Romney's claim to eliminate funding for The National Endowment for the Arts, PBS, and NPR if elected.

IN L.A.: Sarah Cain "Freedom is a Prime Number" @ Honor Fraser

Juxtapoz // Monday, September 24, 2012
  We stopped by the opening reception for Sarah Cain's first solo exhibition in Los Angeles, Freedom is a Prime Number.
