Brocken Crow - The Bigger Picture Project 2012

The Bigger Picture Project is set of four murals painted on locations along St. Paul's central corridor. Artists John Grider and Mike Fitzsimmons (known together as Broken Crow), designed the images to fit together to create one Bigger Picture along the route of the light rail. Using enormous stencils, they painted animals in motion—lions, camels, rhinos, wolves, tortoises and foxes—varied creatures moving forward together, much like the light rail passengers themselves. The complete composition measures 32 feet tall by 60 feet wide. This is the first multiple-location mural; no one who contributed to the project had tried, or even heard of, anything like it.

Jesse Quam - Aquarius

When the moon is in the Seventh House
And Jupiter aligns with Mars
Then peace will guide the planets
And love will steer the stars
This is the dawning of the age of Aquarius
Age of Aquarius

Harmony and understanding
Sympathy and trust abounding
No more falsehoods or derisions
Golden living dreams of visions
Mystic crystal revelation
And the mind's true liberation

Jonwayne - Out of sight

Countless nights are bound to speak
Eyes open
Quotes dance democratically
Sing voices in my erratic being
Savage ears, here spoken
A palindrome trance caught off guard and woken

Jesse Quam - Land of the free

  Over the weekend I was inspired to work on music rather than paintings.  I believe it’s always nice to bang on the drums, keys, and make noises into the microphone.  This has helped balance out my creative thinking process.  Working on paintings is more sitting in one spot and less movement. I move my whole body when I’m creating music and this is very relaxing for my mind.  Enjoy the weirdness!
