RJFC Hits Art Week Miami 2016

I took the opportunity to head down to Miami again for Art Week in December of 2016. I literally got blisters on my feet from walking so much. I managed to meet many great artists and see a lot of inspiring work. Only put up 3 pieces on this visit but I was pretty happy with them. rjfc sticker # 82

RJFC sticker # 82 was made on a CD label using trash from the street. It was completed on 5/12/16 while sitting at the Starbucks on Belcher at SR60 in Clearwater, FL.

Then I arranged only trash found on the streets of Miami. I started it while sitting at the Starbucks at 2937 Biscayne Blvd, at the intersection of NE 30th Street on the evening of 12/3/16, then finished it after midnight in my room at an Air BnB apartment in Little Haiti at 335 Northeast 53rd Street.

I left it the morning of 12/4/16 on a wall outside the Lulu Laboratorium on NE 23rd Street at the intersection of NW 1st Place, right beside a SacSix piece of Oprah Winfrey. This was about 2 blocks from Wynwood Walls, and just a block away from Panther Coffee, where I was meeting Colorado artist Frank Kwiatkowski an hour later.

On 12/12/16 I sent it as a submission for the 2nd edition of the zine Be A Pal (of Jude & Val Lobasso). I don’t think this zine was ever published, even though the first one was really great.

RJFC hits Florida Keys 2015

During my first visit to the Florida Keys in 2015, I left five pieces out on the streets.

As detailed in my previous post, for the commemoration of my 100th “Relationship” collage, I made a series of 10 (+1 artist’s proof) collaged book pages. This piece (Relationship C) was left on 11/22/15 in Key West, Florida. I stuck it on a Key West Citizen Newspaper box beside the (closed) Backspace Bar & Kitchen at the intersection of James St. and Grinnell St.
