Had we not followed the old saying "Never judge a book by the cover," we would never had read Jonathan Franzen's fantastic new book, Freedom. There is a reason why the saying exists. Stolenspace Gallery has teamed up with Penguin Books for Never Judge . . . ?, a group exhibition featuring modern takes by artists of classic books in the Penguin archives. Pictures after the jump . . .

Sanrio Inc. continues their 50th Anniversary celebration by taking the birthday down to Art Basel-Miami 2010. We were on the ground for Small Gift Los Angeles, and covered the 50th Anniversary in an exclusive story in this month's issue of Juxtapoz, and from the looks of the work after the jump, this portion is going to be better yet . . .

Cool to see that the late Dash "SACE" Snow has a tribute at the famous wall on the corner of Bowery and Houston that Deitch Projects used to rotate out with various international arists. We didn't know Dash personally, but we have friends that did, so we feel this is a nice ode to the man. Bigger picture after the jump . . .

Last month in our November 2010 issue, Barbara Kruger graced our cover. It was an important cover and interview for us, as Kruger is one of the biggest and most well-regarded artists in all of contemporary art. For the interview, artist Shepard Fairey wrote an exclusive introduction about Kruger for Juxtapoz, an introduction we felt we should share with you. Read it after the jump . . .

So now it has a book. The show everyone will be talking about from now to the end of 2011, the MOCA's Art in the Streets, now has a book cover for the art world to start thinking about. San Francisco's vey own Barry "Twist" McGee is on the cover, rightly and properly so. What else do we know?

With a full Juxtapoz and Thrasher team in tow, we made it out to Glen E. Friedman's "Fuck You All" pre-opening at 941 Geary in San Francisco last night. How else to say it? The work is iconic, and to not sugar coat a damn thing, the photos are genre, generation-defining. With a few collaborative pieces with Shepard Fairey, along with the large space, the show had the appropriate aura to it. Check our shots after the jump...

We are back in that political season, and we got to thinking about Shepard Fairey today, and noticed that he has a new print, "POW(ER)" set for release . . .

Two of Los Angeles' bigger names in contemporary art, Shepard Fairey and Saber, teamed up this past week with"Pride of America" for this mural on the side of De La Barracuda on Melrose. A nice one to go check out if you happen to be attending Fairfax High School, or like seeing murals by Shepard and Saber.

It is with great honor that Barbara Kruger, one the leading and influential contemporary artists of the past 50 years, graces the cover of our November issue. The inside features ain’t bad either.
