This past Fall, as we have documented in full, we saw 6 artists off to Detroit to work with Powerhouse Productions as part of our 15th Anniversary Benefit and Auction project. Swoon, Ben Wolf, Monica Canilao, RETNA, Richard Colman, and Saelee Oh all created unique pieces of art in the neighborhood where the money we raised was able to buy property. The local Detroit Free Press just highlighted the project in an extensive article. More information after the jump . . .

Cover artist and participating Detroit artist RETNA has a new video on LA Forward that shows him giving a tour of his mural in downtown LA that he painted with Mac based on a photograph by Estevan Oriol. What was supposed to be informative turns a tad confrontational as a man near the mural starting shouting at the film crew and Retna. Watch after the jump . . .

Swoon, who just traveled with Juxtapoz to Detroit this past Fall, is releasing a new Haiti print this Wednesday, December 15th.

This is it. We are leaving. Miami, see you next year.

Jason made some last minute stops at NADA and found a Barbara Kruger Chess Set. More pictures after the jump . . .

Yesterday afternoon, PaperMonster released 31 unique variants of Swoon's "Zahra" image that included works on found wood, fabric, cardboard and paper.
