One of the great street, fine, and philanthropic artisits active today, Callie Curry, aka Swoon, has become synonymous with creating art on her own terms. This TEDxBrooklyn talk is very interesting and enlightening, in that Callie really reflects on the positive energy and impact afforded to her under the project and moniker she calls Swoon. This is really a great talk and we highly recommend spending some time watching it in full.

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.

What was supposed to be informative turns a tad confrontational as a man near the mural starting shouting at the film crew and Retna. Watch after the jump . . .
