Punk the Capital, Straight from Washington D.C. Documentary

Please support “Punk the Capital, Straight from Washington D.C.” a film by Paul Bishow and James Schneider.  This documentary explores how punk took hold in Washington D.C., from 1976 through the hardcore explosion of the early 1980s and these guys are raising money through their Kickstarter campaign.  D.C. hardcore was big for me – Minor Threat, Bad Brains, G.I., Scream, and Beefeater.

Paul and James started this project back in 2000 and I hope you can pledge to their campaign to help make this documentary a reality.  Any amount helps. Your contribution will help to preserve and share a wide range of archives including film, video, audio, flyers, zines, photos and other ephemera.  You can find out more and contribute here

From Complex.com

As reported in the Chicago Tribune, today Shepard Fairey announced “Art Alliance: The Provacatuers” – “a big, thoughtfully curated art show” alongside Lollapalooza in Chicago this summer.

“Art Alliance” — part of a marketing partnership between C3 Presents, the Texas-based promoter of Lollapalooza, and Fairey, whose iconic “Hope” portraits of Barack Obama remain as memorable as his Andre the Giant-stamped “Obey” images — will dominate a sizable portion of the 25,000-square-foot building on North State Street.

It will run from July 31 to Aug. 4, concurrent with the music festival (but a separate ticketed event).

Last Day Of Sherpa Fund

Today is the last day of a 7-day $100 print sale by National Geographic photographers to benefit Sherpas and their community affected by the recent tragedy on Everest.  100% of proceeds go to the Alex Lowe Charitable Foundation to be distributed in the community.  Purchase your print at: sherpasfund.org.  This photo is by my friend Aaron Huey and is one of the images for sale.

Here’s more from Aaron:

Friends,   I have been at a loss for what to do in these days after the Everest tragedy. As a photographer who has worked with the Sherpa community (for an upcoming story at National Geographic), I am devastated. Two of the deceased were men I knew. At the end of the day I decided to give back to the community that gave so much to me, by creating sherpasfund.org with Outside Magazine Senior Editor @graysonwyatt. Some of the best photographers in the world joined us. For this week only, 10 of us who have worked in the region will be donating small, signed prints of our work for sale. 100% of proceeds (after printing and shipping) will go to the Sherpa community – distributed by the Alex Lowe Charitable Foundation (non-profit), which has been working with Sherpa climbers in the Khumbu since 2003. By purchasing a print today, you are helping provide relief to Sherpa families in crisis, as well as long-term support that transcends this single incident. Together, we can help to build a more comprehensive safety net for the high-altitude workers who help so many Westerners realize their dreams of the summit.
To buy a print and learn more about distribution of funds visit www.sherpasfund.org

CLEON PETERSON | NIGHT HAS COME

My friend Cleon is on fire with his art right now and is releasing a new print with fire in the art. I’m not sure what Cleon’s inspiration for this piece is, because the police have always been sweethearts to me, respecting my human dignity, health, and safety… I guess Cleon has a bad attitude and robust imagination. If you want to catch the fire, pick up Cleon’s new print on Tues.

-Shepard
Releasing this Tuesday 4/2/14  at  10:00 AM Pacific Standard Time
