JUXTAPOZ MAGAZINE ISSUE #136 - STREET ART
Issue #136 of the long-running contemporary and pop art magazine Juxtapoz features a large celebration of street art as it makes what is likely its victory lap in a journey through the limelight. The May 2012 edition the magazine makes a “special examination on the state of public art in 2012” as we transition to a Post-Street Art era. Public art programs such as the LA Freewalls Project and similar programs across the nation set the tone for what can be done with street art, and the value of such projects and the idea of public art in general is the focus of this month’s issue.
Interesting discussions with people all across the board, from festival stakeholders to politicians and all the way through to the artists actually working in these initiatives should make for a great read in this magazine with four limited editions covers by Steve Powers, JR, Swoon and El Mac. Features with Nuart, FAME Festival, Ron English, and Revok and Saber make the art journal worth a purchase for any street art fan here.
