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 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.

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."

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.
