Call for artists: THE ART OF THE BLACKBOOK (pop-up show in California)


pop-up group art show


(You don't have to be in California, but your artwork does.)

Art Crimes is under construction, but in a good way

It may be a few months before I can update Art Crimes again with new photos. I'm waiting for some good news from the software wizards who are working hard to build some new features and infrastructure for the website.

I'll announce whatever news here and on Twitter as things develop.


Related: it looks like Art Crimes will need to do some fundraising in 2015, so I would sure appreciate your help with that when the time comes.

Art Crimes is one of the very few 20-year-old websites still standing, so this is a good time to consider its future. The goal is to put the website on more solid footing in several ways, to try to futureproof it so people can enjoy Art Crimes and learn about worldwide graffiti art and history for many years to come.

As many of you know, the website has always struggled to stay online, despite a considerable amount of cash contributed by yours truly from time to time, because popularity is expensive. Serving up any kind of visual media is a financial balancing act.

I'll post more over the coming months about how you can support, if you're down to help.

Mostly I'll need help getting the word out.

Also if you represent a brand who might want to work with us on a fundraiser, please get in touch with some ideas.
