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."

Here's a little proof we didn't just take all the money we raised from last November's auction and go on vacation. Mitch Cope of Power House Project in Detroit, the non-profit we raised money for with our Juxtapoz 15th Anniversary Benefit show and auction, is beginning to lay all the groundwork for the 2nd and 3rd phases of the Project.

We're going to take a moment to visit with a marvelous photographer: Martha Cooper. Aside from her crisp urban imagery, we love this lady for her badass, never-stop attitude.

Swoon’s “Swimming Cities” project ranks for us as one of the most impressive art installations of the year, arguably the decade. An adventure like this [Swoon and her crew essentially constructed a vessels out of trash and hit the open sea] has an equally intriguing back-story. Read a personal account of the quest by artist Spy Emerson here.

Swoon (Juxtapoz #73) is one of the most widely respected American female contemporary artists working today. With an eye for the unconventional, she is constantly pushing boundaries.

We’ve been hyped on this issue for months around the Jux offices: our December 2009 edition. To celebrate the year’s closing, and our 15th year in existence, we dedicated an entire issue to one of the most groundbreaking and influential collective movements of our existence: The Barnstormers.

Just to make it all crystal clear, we're reminding you once again that our big 15th Anniversary Art Auction is being held online at CharityBuzz.com in two waves. Why? Because we got so much stunning artwork, we thought it would be better to break it up so you all had less artwork to cull through. This Dave Ellis piece (who will be in our upcoming December 2009 issue) is part of the first wave, and already has multiple bids.

Swoon (Juxtapoz cover #73). Oh, you've seen her: from New York's P.S. 1 and Deitch Projects to Hui No'eau on Maui and Berlin's gritty street corners. Notorious for constructing a giant floating raft and sailing it down river (twice!), she is neither a pirate nor a street artist.
