The best part about "year end lists" is that they are of no consequence. We all have our opinions about what moved us in 2011, what stood out, what was memorable, and as we have spent the past few weeks trying very hard to capture what 2011 meant to Juxtapoz, we decided to keep the conversation loose, to pick various moments that we as a staff remember best.

Having Emory Douglas on the cover of our March 2011 issue was a major highlight for us. Eric Yahnker's show in Los Angeles in January was brilliant, and MOCA's Art In the Streets of course will be noted as a major turning point in museum agendas for years to come. Juxtapoz hosting a film series at the prestigious Museum of Modern Art in NYC was one of our proudest moments, as was seeing Beirut play Outside Lands in SF on a late Sunday afternoon with Jeremy Fish banners, curated by Juxtapoz, flanking the stage. We got to see Lucy McLauchlan paint a historical lighthouse on the coast of Norway, Escif and San paint across the Western US, and Dr Lakra and Herbert Baglione paint for Day of the Dead in Oaxaca, Mexico. Margaret Kilgallen was honored with a beautiful retrospective at Ratio 3 in San Francisco, and Maurizio Cattelan's installation at the Guggenheim was one of the best we saw all year. Swoon kept her promise as one of the most beloved artists we cover with a fantastic interactive musical house in New Orleans and showstopping installation at MOCA. Mike Mills' Beginners was one of the best films of the year, and the Costacos Brothers' For the Kids exhibit in NYC brought back amazing memories of our childhood. BNE starting a non-profit organization to promote clean drinking water, and JR won the TED Award. And this is just tip of the iceberg!

We can't wait to hear what you loved about 2011 as well... this is just a snippet of the year that was...
