Parks Project: Quality Goods with a Purpose http://www.juxtapoz.com/fashion/parks-project-quality-goods-with-a-purpose http://www.juxtapoz.com/fashion/parks-project-quality-goods-with-a-purpose Parks Project: Quality Goods with a Purpose
Parks Project is a brand that proposes to use their business to help solve some of the problems facing our parks. "It all started a few years ago, when we joined up with the National Park Service to do volunteer days," they told us. "We learned there was much more to do in supporting our public lands during a time of budget cuts and low youth involvement. According to the NPCA there has been more than a 7%, or $173 million reduction in the account to operate national parks and more than a 12%, or $364 million reduction in the total budget for the National Park Service over the last five years in today’s dollars. Ouch. Could we use business…

In the Magazine: Crystal Wagner http://www.juxtapoz.com/current/in-the-magazine-crystal-wagner http://www.juxtapoz.com/current/in-the-magazine-crystal-wagner In the Magazine: Crystal Wagner
Crystal Wagner is performing a visionary dance, and in its wake, fantastical organisms are left—lively, colorful and curious. Dazzling and disgusting. Like tidal waves and tree forts, her site-specific installations engulf the audience, simulating an encounter with nature, but with a wholly unnatural skin, a suggestion of excess, and a little nostalgia on the side. Growing up in a custom studio, her commitment to the art life has fueled her trajectory since day one.

Weisberg, currently lives and works in Brooklyn, NY but returned to the soil which he cut his teeth on for a month to make a beautiful new series of works; both sculptures in the round and wall sculptures.

The Paintings of Clovis Trouille http://www.juxtapoz.com/current/the-paintings-of-clovis-trouille http://www.juxtapoz.com/current/the-paintings-of-clovis-trouille The Paintings of Clovis Trouille
Clovis Trouille was born on 24 October 1889, in La Fère, France. He worked as a restorer and decorator of department store mannequins, but is remembered as a Sunday painter who trained at the École des Beaux-Arts of Amiens from 1905 to 1910. After his work was seen by Louis Aragon and Salvador Dalí, Trouille was declared a Surrealist by André Breton - a label Trouille accepted only as a way of gaining exposure, not having any real sympathy with that movement. The simple style and lurid colouring of Trouille's paintings echo the lithographic posters used in advertising in the first half of the 20th century. He died on 24 September 1975 in Paris.

Now through September 14, Brooklyn-based artists FAILE (who also have a exhibition at the Brooklyn Museum right now, what a summer for these dudes), have an interactive-installation in Times Square called "Wishing on You." As they said on their Instagram, the project is a "Spinning the 7ft tall, hand carved wooden wheel kinetically powers the neon lights in the ceiling of the sculpture. The entire structure is made of wood and carved wood a nice organic contrast in the midst of Times Square." Our contributor Joe Russo was their to document the whole thing!
