Toward a People's Art: The Contemporary Mural Movement


Toward a People's Art: The Contemporary Mural Movement

Eva Cockcroft, John Pitman Weber

First published in 1977, Toward a People's Art remains a classic study of the community-based mural movement that produced hundreds of large-scale wall paintings in the United States and Canada. The authors provide a comprehensive discussion of the muralists, the murals' effects on the community, and the funding these works received.

Those interested in art and social change will welcome this new edition, which represents an ongoing faith in the ideal of participatory democracy as the best way to confront the nation's social problems and in the potential of activist art to have long-term social impact. The introduction describes the era-the late 1960s-and a new afterword looks at the 1980s and 1990s and the continuing commitment to the community-engaged process of making public art.

Mandato falso: la calma antes de la tormenta

La Jornada, México D.F. Lunes 8 de noviembre de 2004 (véase también Rebelión.org)

Es una tradición en la democracia lite estadunidense robar elecciones cuando no hay un ganador claro, como ocurrió con la "victoria" de Kennedy contra Nixon en 1960, debida a la corrupción del alcalde Daily de Chicago, o la "victoria" de George W. Bush en 2000 por el golpe de estado de la Suprema Corte. Ahora tenemos la primera "elección" de Bush gracias a una combinación de corrupción en estados claves, errores de máquinas y la privación del derecho al voto de las minorías e inmigrante-ciudadanos "no blancos," incluyendo casi 3 millones de arabeamericanos (casi igual al margen de Bush en el voto popular).

May First in the Belly of the Beast

Originally published on Cubanow [May 1, 2004]

The First of May has not been celebrated in the US since the beginning of the Cold War. The people don’t even know why it is celebrated in the rest of the world, in spite of the fact that it is held in honor of the eight Chicago Martyrs of 1886. But this 1st of May there will be protests because it is the first anniversary of the “victory” in the war against Iraq.
