“Wall Writers” Opens at MCA Denver on 2/11; Get a Preview at the Opening Celebration 2/10

February 8, 2017

Wall Writers MCADenver Feb10

“Wall Writers: Graffiti In Its Innocence” about to open with its own exhibit at MCA Denver this Saturday, February 11th. The museum says, “The exhibition includes an impressive array of materials and documentation that celebrate the early roots of pioneering street artists. High school notebooks of the artists, the first canvases painted, spray paint advertisements, commercial greeting cards, as well as richly documented images of buildings completely covered in spray-painted monikers reveal the context of this early movement. Tracing the origins of graffiti, the exhibition also presents the slow transition from art of the street to fine art, including some examples by established artists such as Gordon Matta-Clark and the photographer Jon Naar. Wall Writers also highlights some of the most prolific writers of the time, including TAKI 183 (who wrote in New York City) and Cornbread (who was in Philadelphia). The exhibition as a whole stands as an important historical narrative about the origins of one of the most prolific art movements of the twentieth century.” For more information visit the exhibition website here. 

The comprehensively-researched exhibition will run from February 11th to May 7th, 2017, but you can get an early taste at the museum’s Winter Opening Celebration this Friday, February 10th. A celebration of all of their new winter exhibits, including an exhibition on Basquiat and another on Ryan McGinley as well as the Wall Writers show, the event will run from 7:30 pm to midnight and features a “downtown” dress code. If you’re interested in attending you can find ticket information here, but hurry; VIP tickets for the event are already sold out!

Read Todd Blubaugh’s New Interview in Petrolicious

December 12, 2016

Todd Blubaugh Petrolicious

Florence Walker at Petrolicious has just published a great new interview with Todd Blubaugh that delves into the gearhead aspects of his 6-month road trip in 2013 as well as the spiritual and psychological.

Walker says of Too Far Gone, “One day English Literature Students in lofty ivory towers will study the themes surrounding road trips with the same intensity as they study gender in Twelfth Night and love in Romeo and Juliet. One of the works you could imagine them discussing late into the night is Todd Blubaugh’s latest offering, Too Far Gone.” She goes on, “Todd’s poetic language and candid photography is therapy in itself for the reader. For anyone seeking to understand man’s way of dealing with bereavement, this book is a must.”

Treat yourself to the full interview at Petrolicious here. Too Far Gone is available from Gingko Press.

For US holiday orders, please place your order by Friday, December 16th for FedEx delivery by the 25th.
