For Steve Powers, the mandate of Public Art is entrenched in public service. I hope his mission continues and catches on with others in the field. Beyond offering an inspiring uppercut of double entendre’d messaging, Powers offers a free sign making service to the surrounding neighborhood during his stay. In this way he can give back to the local shops in need of some exterior surface painting outreach. After all, they are the ones permanently hosting the event whether they like Powers’ work or not. That way, he leaves an impression when he leaves an impression.

Walt drew a pleasingly plump, smiling mouse and built a home for him in Disneyland, the Happiest Place on Earth. Big Daddy Roth created a sweaty-palmed, bloodshot, orbed rodent who looked like he frequented the seedier side of the Golden State. Fittingly, Ed Roth ended up spending the sunset days of his career at Knott’s Berry Farm, which was known for shoot ‘em up tableaux and way scarier rides. I stopped by Robert and Suzanne’s homestead to get a firsthand spin from the flinty eyed Williams himself.

Last month, when we showed you the trailer for Berlin-based David OReilly's "The External World," we were confused by his description of the film, "A boy learns to play piano." There was no piano in the trailer. Now, after screening at the 67th Venice Film Festival and Sundance 2011, OReilly has released the full-length, and there is a boy learning piano. Watch in full after the jump . . .

*Every Sunday, Juxtapoz.com will highlight an artist that we feel is currently on the cusp of a new level of critical and technical success. The artist we feature will not necessarily be unknown, nor will they be of a pre-established museum career. But they will be artists who have showcased progress in a new body of work that deserves continual examination. We will mostly look at the work itself and let the art speak. Today, we look at Los Angeles based fine artist, Devin Troy Strother.
