Thrilla in Manilla

I got my hands on a copy of the first issue of Thrilla in Manilla this past weekend. The words copy and issue do not really do this project justice though. Tom Pennington and Versus Gallery put out an open call for artists and all types of creators to make an edition of 50 items that measure 8.5" x 11" or smaller to be included in issue one. The work is varied and includes handmade stickers, original art, CDs, photographs, etc. The digital issue is quite impressive and worth a look if you can't get your hands on the real thing. I really dig the cover art by Overstreet Ducasse screen printed directly on Manilla envelope in red and signed by the artist. We all know the devil is in the details and my man Tom P. rarely misses. Especially noteworthy was the red wax seal on the back envelope flap with the initials VS stamped into it. The only thing this project left me wanting was issue two.

It is with much pleasure that we announce the arrival of a new art, music, performance space downtown Jacksonville on Hemming Plaza. Located at 229 N. Hogan, The Bryan Building was built in 1927 and housed Underwood's Jeweler's corporate headquarters and retail for many years. The third story space is a dream come true. 6,200 sq ft, old wood floors, exposed brick walls. Just rough enough. Our first show will be open call for Artwalk Wednesday November 4th. The drop off deadline is November 3rd. IT'S GETTING GOOD, STAY TUNED...

Good things in the air lately: new artwalk venue looks promising, tasty discussions about public transportation, and A PUBLIC ART ARMY IS BEING ASSEMBLED. If you are an artist or collective interested in collaborating on PUBLIC ART get in touch with me. If you are a business or property owner interested in participating in this ART IN PUBLIC SPACES MOVEMENT, we need you! Public art creates vibrant communities that also thrive economically. It is time to take pride in who we are and where we live. Go forth and beautify...
