It's not hyperbolic to say that for many people over the last decade plus, Detroit's 1XRUN has taught many how to collect art. To feel comfortable with it. To see a form of art they love, street art, and figure out a way to have a piece of it in their homes. Through their art print business, their various gallery iterations and Murals in the Market, Jesse Cory and Dan Armand have taken a love of graffiti, street art, storytelling and Detroit and turned it into one of the pillars of print collecting around the world. And now through NFTs, they are once again changing the way we collect.

We have been trying to get Jesse and Dan on the Radio Juxtapoz podcast for years, and as we are nearly at the 1-year anniversary of the early NFT craze, we thought it would be a good time for Juxtapoz editor Evan Pricco to chat with the two from their Detroit base as we discussed how the pandemic changed their business, how Glenn Barr changed their strategy in the early years and how their lifelong friendship has allowed them both to have honest conversation about the business of art and the evolution of collecting.

The Radio Juxtapoz podcast is hosted by FIFTH WALL TV's Doug Gillen and Juxtapoz editor, Evan Pricco. Episode 083 was recorded in March 2022 in Detroit and Los Angeles. Follow us on @radiojuxtapoz
