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!

from time to time i get asked whether i have anything for sale.  i do.  i now have a page called “schwag!” that gives you an idea of what’s available.   the site isn’t set up as a business so 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 work with local artists in the painted desert project.

peace.

the nez family offering silver and turquoise jewelry as an expression of thanks.

(the significance of this video is that it documents the first time i got a big, multipart piece up solo.)
