So....how exactly do they earn a living? Is this being sponsored by someone?

Re: “2014 Living Walls Conference celebrates five years of dialogue

I would like to take this opportunity to ask people to look up "Doug Dean" and "Cleta Winslow".

But really, Living Walls has brought a level of vibrance and excitement to Atlanta that I haven't seen in a long time. Thanks to them, their volunteers, and to Monica.

Re: “Lucid FC twins say goodbye to ATL

Now Lucy looks sweet 'cause he dresses like a queen but he can kick like a mule and it's a real mean team.

And that's all I got to say about that.

Re: “Lucid FC twins say goodbye to ATL

Step 1. Come up with a logo. Step 2. Print that logo on a bunch of blank clothing and merch that was designed and produced by other companies. Congrats, you're a clothing label!

CL...How about spotlighting a label that actually designs and manufacturers their clothing, rather than some "logo brand" with a shopify page.

Re: “Darien Long is gone but not forgotten at Metro Mall

Long was fired because he was doing the right thing. When you stand up against evil you may get knocked down but what's important is that he knows that though there may be many who hate him and are glad he's gone there are also those who still believe I'm him and his cause no matter how he's portrayed by the press. Also the whole comment about acting within the confines of the law well where was APD in the majority of those videos? They weren't supporting him or backing him up when he needed it and that would have diffused a lot of the situations Long had to deal with and the extreme measures he was forced to take.

Re: “Art appropriation 101

Here's the ultimate skinny...

The artists involved had every right to call the cat on appropriating their work.

However they created a problem for themselves, I suspect, by not placing any (C) notice or ID on the paintings. Big surprise, since to do so might open them up to graffiti prosecution.

Such notices are the 1st step in protecting one's creations b/c while (C) is inherent in the work itself, one must be active in self-protection---there's no (C) police out there working on anyone's behalf & if you don't take steps to cite yer role as a creator you can't blame anyone for not crediting you.

That's why even major corps like Xeorox & Kleenex regularly sent out notices to those who may use their [TM} brand names as generic terms.

It's legit to take pix of public displays but it's not legit to then try marketing those without either getting permission or crediting the creator(s)...which takes us back to the 1st point: if there's no disignation of (C) or of even who made the work, how ya gonna get credit ?

This is increasingly vital in our age of massive online postings & exchanges.
While (C) terms have been extended greatly in recent yrs (Mark Twain's estate would be raking it in if theses laws were in place a century ago !) --- the intended beneficiaries are not really ythe artists but corporations that may come ot control the works, e.g., Disney maintaining near eternal control over anything having to do with Mickey Mouse.

Bottom line: y' gotta monitor uses & guard yer work on yer own.

This was the absolute best theatrical production I've seen this year, and I go to just about all of them. I cannot recommend it enough. Well done to everyone involved for a great show!

Re: “Art appropriation 101

I get it, everybody is trying to make a buck and needs credit where credit is due. I haven't seen the any of the photos that this this fake-ass overpriced BOHO bullshit place put in their building but I think this whole outrage stuff is stupid. Let me know if I have the story straight here; some guy took a bunch of pictures of publicly displayed murals around town and did some sort of photo collage and sold prints to the BOHO place and was also trying to sell prints on instagram? So now everybody is angry that the artists aren't being compensated for the appropriation of their work? If some dude takes a photo of a public wall then I would think that its his photo and he can do what he wants with it. If you took a picture of that "awesome" new ferris wheel downtown and sold prints of it would you have to track down the people that own it and give them a cut? where do we draw the line? I'm tired of hearing about everyone's causes and issues. #keepittoyourself

Re: “Art appropriation 101

@xcnuck there's a lot of pieces that are used in his collage, but the nearly all of it comes from either Living Walls murals or Cabbagetown Wallkeeper murals which are completely legal and done with all the proper permits and approvals neccessary. There are two elements of the piece where I can recognize the artist, but not the location so I couldn't tell you about their permission, but none of these images are tags. The elements of the collage were created by professional Atlanta artists.

Re: “Art appropriation 101

Several questions...

do these street artists have permission to paint on the walls that they paint on? more specifically, were the pieces displayed in Kaase's collage originally painted with permission? if the answer is "no", or even "some of it", then I don't think Kaase is at fault whatsoever. Why should he have to ask for permission to display the collage publicly if it is composed work that was originally performed without permission?

Re: “Art appropriation 101

Know that I'm rereading this, I'm realizing that the author has no idea what murals were used or where. There isn't a singular wall that Mr. Kaase took a photo of, but a mashup of many in the cabbagetown and EAV areas. If this is an article about correctly appropriating work to someone, perhaps you'd like to credit Travis Smith for using some of his work in the photo for this article?

Or you know, just use it without permission.
