Going Over Murals?
Wednesday, 02 April 2014 11:21

We've noticed this mural on 19th St here in the Mission has been getting bombed over the last week.

Is going over a mural acceptable?

Isn't there an unwritten rule of not going over murals?

San Francisco Museum of Modern Art Is Closed but Active
Monday, 31 March 2014 11:00

SAN FRANCISCO - Tourists are asking why this city's Modern art museum is closed. Cabdrivers are wondering when it will reopen. Teachers are lamenting the loss of a valuable destination for school field trips.

Lynn Hershman Leeson, a local artist, has let her annual membership to the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art lapse, saying she does "not feel compelled" to renew it until the museum reopens after its $295 million expansion. --continue reading

Street Eraser in London
Friday, 28 March 2014 11:41

LONDON --- tired of walking down the street and having visuals pushed up in your face? Well, Guus Ter Beek and Tayfun Serier in London are out there busy with Photoshop erasing as much as possible with Street Eraser!

Anyone who's used the software will recognise the grey and white checkerboard pattern, and we rather like the idea that it's hiding under the surface of everything around us. And there's still a lot to erase in London. PICS

We the People, and the Republic we must reclaim
Wednesday, 26 March 2014 10:10

No matter what cause you support and would like your representatives to support in government... It's just about all mute until we get money out of politics... or at least lessen its importance in politics.

Give yourself 10 minutes to watch this brilliant entertaining Ted Talk to get up to speed on this most important issue... because until we get this problem solved, there can be no other problems solved. There needs to be a ground swell- a rumbling from us to finally do something about it. Get it in your brain.

There is a corruption at the heart of American politics, caused by the dependence of Congressional candidates on funding from the tiniest percentage of citizens. That's the argument at the core of this blistering talk by legal scholar Lawrence Lessig. With rapid-fire visuals, he shows how the funding process weakens the Republic in the most fundamental way, and issues a rallying bipartisan cry that will resonate with many in the U.S. and beyond.

Graffiti taggers could face a much bigger price tag
Monday, 24 March 2014 10:17

SAN FRANCISCO --- the city is beginning a new system for collecting multiple examples of taggers and graffiti artists' work and showing them to a judge in hopes of collecting large sums of restitution money following the lead of cities like San Diego.

"The beauty of the system is we don't get the guy with one tag for $250," said Victor Barr, San Diego County deputy district attorney when I talked to him last fall. "We are able to build these cases up to $5,000 and up. When you can show 50 tags or 100 tags, suddenly the judge and the public defender take it a lot more seriously." ~continue reading

Property owner Laurance Mathews walks past graffiti defacing his building on Erie Alley and South Van Ness Avenue. "It cost me $15,000 to clean up my building last year", he said.
