the arizona snowbowl (the ski resort in flagstaff making snow from reclaimed waste water while desecrating a site considered sacred to 13 local tribes), is expanding. in 2012 i connected with local artists and activists asking them what they thought of the initial proposal to make snow from waste water. their responses were written on their faces, photographed and 2 murals were made in downtown flagstaff. with the news of the recent expansion, i returned to the sagacious words of diné musician, activist and filmmaker, klee benally and his wife, princess – “what we do the mountain, we do to ourselves.” thanks to everybody who stopped by and gave me love today. it’s always appreciated.

Artist Nils Westergard painted a mural in the fall of 2013 of a young man (Calvin Smith), from the community of Inscription House. Last spring there was a day when the wind gusted up to 70 miles/hour resulting in several panels of the mural being blown off. With great effort a friend and I repaired the painting. (Thanks Stella!) The same thing happened this spring; however, before being blown off a second time the piece was tagged by the Route 16 Lost Boyz.
I wanted to interact with Nils’ original piece and found a one of my favorite photos of Calvin Smith’s nephew, Owen + attempted to create a dynamic between them where they’re considering their futures. Thanks to Jeff Wilson, Clara Bensen, Daniel Fararra + Nils Aucante for an amazing day!
thanks to artist andrew erdos for turning me onto this piece by jazz-minh moore included in her show at claire oliver gallery, nyc.
