We previewed Creative Lives Season 2 and contest yesterday on the site, and because it is the last week of 2010, we are looking through some of our favorite moments. We always liked the Super8 footage that was shot by Creative Lives while McGee was setting up the centerpiece installation of the SFMoMA's 75th Anniversary Show. Watch after the jump . . .

One of our favorite series' of the year was Todd "REAS" James' "Somali Pirates." Just in time for the year to close (and what says year-end Holiday celebration like a Somali Pirate?), Todd James just released a new Pirate print through Edition Copenhagen in Denmark. More images after the jump . . .

If you can remember back to July, Juxtapoz had extensive coverage on the ground at the Transfer show in Sao Paulo, Brazil. After a bit of time, a video of Barry McGee, one of the American artists who made it down to the important Brazilian show, from Transfer was just finished and released. Watch it after the jump . . .

What is a nice art tradition here in San Francisco since 1967, the SFMoMA just announced that Mauricio Ancalmo, Colter Jacobsen, Ruth Laskey, and Kamau Amu Patton are the 2010 artists for its biennial SECA Art Award. For those who don't know, "Administered by SECA (Society for the Encouragement o f Contemporary Art), one of the museum's auxiliaries, the signature award honors Bay Area artists who are working independently at a high level of artistic maturity but who have not yet received substantial recognition."

We had wanted to feature Michael Leon's "Dicks of the World" wall art piece here, but we figured that might be a bit jarring this early in the day. Bodega has teamed up with Barry McGee, Leon, Steve Harrington, Cody Hudson, and Hisham Bharoocha for a new series of large scale, eco-friendly, temporary indoor art. Pictures of the new collaborative pieces after the jump . . .

You could be struggling with holiday ideas. Yesterday we mentioned the new Barry McGee book as a pre-order alternative, and now, we go in a similar direction with this collaborative lithograph through Edition Copenhagen of REAS, TWIST, and AMAZE. Only 65 were made, so this is a limited, limited edition piece. More after the jump . . .
