Illicit Stencil Saves Cyclist

CCA Chicago presents "Tools for Actions"

Toronto’s Urban Repair Squad grew tired of waiting for municipal authorities to create adequate bicycle lanes and began to install their own DIY infrastructure, encouraging others to take action against car culture. Since 2005, the group has painted over six kilometres of bicycle lanes on major and minor streets in Toronto while disguised as municipal workers – official City of Toronto workers attempt to remove the markings as fast as they are painted.

Soule in Ladies First on 12 Feb.

More INFO

What better month than February to highlight a ladies only urban contemporary art show. This is the Bherd Studios 2nd Annual show and they feel that perhaps they should just declare the month of February as a celebration of Fabulously Fresh Females Artists! The artists that they are presenting in February are each incredibly productive, talented and highly motivated women who have shown their work on a national and some, on an international level. If you attend any popular local art festival or craft show, you are sure to see myself (Soule) Soopajdelux, Michelle Smith-Lewis and Coco Howard among the mix of entrepreneurial talent.
