And finally, the art. We are so proud of all the artwork that is on exhibit in "Art Truancy: Celebrating 20 Years of Juxtapoz Magazine," open at Jonathan LeVine Gallery in NYC through June 14, 2014. It blows our mind that we are now two decades old, but what is even more amazing are all the artists that have been in our pages over those years. Their works tell the story, create the chance to document alternative art narratives, bring out the fans, bring out the collectors, and keep the creative energy of Juxtapoz alive. Here, then, is all the art in "Art Truancy."

Juxtapoz // Thursday, February 13, 2014
Juxtapoz is going to make a field trip today to a show that we are really exicted about, but seeing that it comes down on Saturday, we think you need to head over as well if you are in the San Francisco Bay Area. Paul Mavrides, a member of the influential Zap Comix! underground comic collective and longtime resident of SF's Mission District, has a show up at Steven Wolf Fine Arts. This is Mavrides' first show in 10 years, and is a collection of found object wood paintings.
