Juxtapoz // Tuesday, December 28, 2010
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 . . .

We wrote last month about RETNA painting at the Cosmopolitan in Las Vegas, and now the hotel has brought in legendary NYC artist, filmmaker, and hip-hop pioneer Fab Five Freddy to be the first artist-in-residence at the hotel's P3 Studio.

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.
