Signed, numbered + stamped

$65

This poster was created from a sticker originally designed for a criminal justice reform campaign by Amplifier Foundation. The text reads “…MLK was arrested 30 times as part of a strategy for social change. Today in the U. S. young men of color are incarcerated at the HIGHEST RATE in the WORLD. The rate is 1 in 17 white men, 1 in 3 black men and 1 in 6 Latino men.”

Amplifier Foundation writes “Prisons don’t work. One out of every 100 Americans is behind bars. The U.S. spends $80 billion/year on incarceration. Seventy million Americans have a criminal record. In too many neighborhoods young people of color are more likely to go to prison than to college. It’s time to move #beyondprisons. If you or your family have been affected by this system of mass incarceration, we would like to hear from you. ”

“Tell us your story by uploading it to social media as either a short video or short story using the hashtag #myprisonstory.”

 

The Dinè nation is rich with oil, natural gas, coal, uranium + water in aquifers.  Yet, as a result of decades of being treated as a colonized nation approximately 25% of the 180,000 people living on the rez don’t have running water (or electricity though more people are getting solar systems).

This new 2 color, 16″ x 25″ hand pulled screen print,  edition of 100 will be used to raise money for Dig Deep, a private California based company bringing water (+ solar energy) to the rez through the Navajo Water Project.  The prints go for $50 including shipping with 100% of funds going to the Navajo Water Project.

My apologies the site isn’t set up as a business site.  However, if you’re interested in something, email me at:  jetsonorama@gmail.com.  All monies will be used to bring more art to the rez and to work with local artists in the Painted Desert Project.

Peace.

      hey kathy. thank you. you can see most of the screen prints + glicèe prints available for sale on the blog. if you see something you’d like, let me know by email at jetsonorama@gmail done com.

      as for the map, my google map disappeared last spring after being up for 6 years. i’ve not had a chance to replace it but here’s the basic info. there will be a lot more visiting artists coming this summer.

      Painted Desert Project Description of Sites + Their Approximate Locations

      Sorry the original Google map of sites disappeared but basically, as you travel along Highway 89 look for roadside jewelry stands with “different” types of art on them. A lot of stands may be closed during the winter months because of the temperature. However, the best place to see work by several different artists is the site at Bitter Springs south of Page, AZ. A lot of the painted work is weathered now but is still holding up. The image at the top of my blog (www.jetsonorama.net) is found at Bitter Springs.

      If you’re traveling south on Highway 89 the next group of paintings will start about 20 miles from Bitter Springs. There’s a blue roadside stand on the west side of the highway with work by artists 2501 + Pixel Pancho. Then, continuing south, about 0.5 miles south of the 89/160 junction on Highway 89 there’s another roadside stand on the west side of the highway with art by Stinkfish of Colombia, Mazatl of Mexico, Killjoy of the US, Billy Fefer from Flagstaff, Andrea Avery from Wisconsin and 2 small pieces by me.

      About 8 – 12 miles on south of this Highway 89 there’s an abandoned pump house that sits alone on the east side of the highway with 2 pieces by me. This one is pretty easy to spot.

      In Gray Mountain there’s some older pieces that are in various stages of deterioration. My last piece on Highway 89 is an ad for a show at the Coconino Center for the Arts in Antelope Hills on the west side of Highway 89

      If you venture onto Highway 160, I have work at the old Red Lake Trading Post. This work is older and is deteriorating but it’s worth stopping at the trading post to meet the owner, Lorenzo Fowler. There’s a piece at Red Lake by Nils Westergaard that’s still in good shape. About 10 east of Red Lake is the old Cow Springs Trading Post. I have work there which has been badly tagged. A local artist named Daniel Josley has a nice colorful piece on the front which is still in pretty good shape.

      As you travel east on 160 from Cow Springs about 5 miles from the trading post on the north side of the highway is a water tank and windmill that sits off the highway by about 0.5 miles. I’ve 2 pieces there. An artist from Montreal, Labrona, has a nice piece there also.

      If you travel about 15 miles east on highway 160 towards Kayenta you’ll come to Black Mesa junction where there is an old trading post that’s closed now. The most recent piece I did is there. More work will be coming to the Black Mesa Shopping Center area during the summer of 2018.

      If you’re on Highway 98 traveling between Page, AZ and Highway 160 there’s work by a variety of artists at the old Crossroads Trading Post, which is at the intersection of Navajo Route 16 and Highway 98. If you travel 4 miles north on Navajo Route 16 you’ll see a beautiful mural painted by Nani Chacon at the Inscription House Senior Center. Forty miles north of this there’s work by 2501 and Pixel Pancho on old water tanks near Navajo Mountain. Even if you’re not able to locate the tanks, the drive alone is worth the attempt.

      Bear with me; a new Google map will be forthcoming. Stop and talk to folks along the way as they can help you find the sites. Happy hunting!
