We are happy to announce the 6 artists joining Power House Productions in Detroit to re-imagine the homes that we purchased from the Juxtapoz 15th Anniversary Benefit and Auction last Fall. We got some winners coming to Detroit.

We just got issues of our next September 2010 edition in and we must say, they’re pretty hot. RETNA graces the newsstand cover with a feature interview with MOCA Director Jeffrey Deitch, while the subscriber cover features the powerful imagery of London’s INSA.

We just received a summer update from Power House, whom we raised money for during our 2009 15th Anniversary Benefit and Auction. This Fall we are sending artists [Richard Colman, Rene Almanza, Saelee Oh, Retna, Monica Canilao...] to Detroit to help paint, organize, and build in the neighborhood, and Power House has spent the past 6 months buying homes, and prepping the entire ongoing project.

Had to make an emergency trip down to Los Angeles this past week, a quick one to get our cover story wrapped up for the September issue. Near my hotel was this, the wall that has been photographed and documented by everyone and their mother by now, but... I did some weird color thing on accident to the Revok piece, so you have to look at the bigger pictures to see his piece. And his piece was damn good, but I don't want to post some blurred out shot.

Power House Project's Mitch and Gina, the group that Juxtapoz' 15th Anniversary Auction benefited and is in the midst of a major Juxtapoz collaboration on the ground in Detroit, are having an exhibition under their Design 99 name at the Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit, called Too Much of a Good Thing. I read on Core77.com that "Over the past few months, they've developed the Neighborhood Machine, a repurposed, freshly-painted Bobcat, extending the concept of the Power House. Part-sculpture, part-community tool, the vehicle can be hooked to a series of "project trailers," each specific to a task performed in the neighborhood: collecting found material, gardening (Design99 maintain a tree nursery in an empty lot), power generation with photovoltaics, and, of course, moving stuff around."
