Priest releases "Coke Diet" Hand-pulled screenprint

Our good friend and often collaborator in the arts has released a hand-pulled screen print in an edition of 100.  The subject this time leaves the UMS schoolgirls alone and instead takes focus on the veritably troubled Ms. Lindsay Lohan.  Priest has also recently worked with Crista Rock Productions to put out a short video to accompany the print release (video at bottom).



Priest has been known for years as the person who has made Mobile a more tolerable place to visit by beautifying the landscape with satirical stencils, taking aim at the likes of BP and their wonderful oil spill and their local politicians among many other topics.

To hunt down your print, check out Priest here at Big Cartel:

NoLA Rising 6th Annual Toys for Art Swap - 2012 - Call for Art



NoLA Rising IS PROUD TO ANNOUNCE OUR 2012 SIXTH ANNUAL "It's Yours, Take It" TOYS FOR ART SWAP


For NoLA Rising’s Sixth Annual Installment of It’s Yours, Take It, we would like to continue our seasonal holiday art for toys swap. For five years, we have helped create artwork that is donated to the event in order to raise toys for the Marine Corps Toys for Tots program. A collaboration between the arts community of New Orleans and street artists around the world to help benefit the children of New Orleans.

The premise is simple: Someone coming to the event brings a brand new toy in a box to donate for the children during the holiday season and they get to take a piece of donated artwork with them. The toys are then given to the Marines and they sort it for their annual holiday distribution. All pieces are donated and traded for toys; no money exchanges.

There is no theme on the artwork, so create as you wish.

Our venue is currently unconfirmed, however it will be held within the first two weeks of December. We will confirm dates and location once finalized and inform accordingly.

NoLA Rising is a 501(c)3 and can issue a donation letter to artists who indicate a value to their pieces for tax purposes. Please ensure actual value, in writing and detailing artist, mailing address, piece name and estimated value.

Deadline for sending artwork is December 4th, as always, thank you’re your years of support in helping make this event a success… THE REVOLUTION IS YOU! -Rex

SEND ARTWORK & DETAILS TO:
NOLA RISING / REX DINGLER
39280 TRAINO LANDING ROAD
PONCHATOULA, LA 70454


NOLA ARTISTS CAN CONTACT REX FOR DETAILS ON PICK-UP ARRANGEMENTS

IYTI - NoLA 5 // December 11th - Hi-Ho

For the fifth installment of New Orleans’ It’s Yours, Take it, Rex would yet again like to continue the practice of a holiday art swap. For the fifth year in a row, artwork has been created and sent in for a toy for art swap to raise toys for the Marine Corps Toys for Tots program and similar programs in the New Orleans area. The premise is simple: Someone brings a brand new toy in a box to donate to children and they get to take a piece of art with them. The toys are then donated to programs for their annual holiday distribution.

The paint parties have been going on since that pesky storm passed by our city and our levees failed due to (well, you know)... To bolster the NoLA Rising offerings to people who bring toys in a box, we are having a paint party in conjunction with New Orleans Fringe Festival. The artwork created during the art event will be stored until the day of the art swap at the Hi-Ho Lounge.

All best,

Announcing NoLA Rising's New Website...

Howdy everyone,

NoLA Rising has been busy behind the scenes getting some business in order. One such task was re-designing our website. Check it out and let us know what you think!

http://nolarising.org/

With the re-introduction of the website and the blog feature attached, we'll start transferring over applicable posts from the blogspot address here to there.

Btw, we had help on this from dedicated friends and associates. Elli of Ms. Placed helped with the header design, Lance Vargas is still graciously hosting our site and Calliope Consulting took the design and laid out the development.

As always, thanks for supporting NoLA Rising and Paint the Change you wish to see!

Happy New Year and Happy Twelfth Night,
Rex
NoLA Rising

INSPIRE Collective's 4th Annual REUSE PROJECT: REUSE & RESIST!



REUSE PROJECT 4: REUSE & RESIST! Open Call For Art until Feb. 1st! www.reuseandresist.tk

What is the ReUse Project? Every year, for the past 4 years, INSPIRE Collective has made a call for art, taken a centralized public building, and installed as much artwork inside & outside as possible, then we open the doors to the public!
Want to get involved this time around? Just keep reading…

There is a better way, no matter what they say! Present-day cities, the world over, have massive percentages of un-used & generally neglected public space. By itself, this fact quickly becomes its own negative social issue & it isn’t a phenomenon, it’s a disgusting norm of all industrialized cities at this point. WE MUST REUSE AND RESIST!!
But how?! Many social issues could be already solved by ReUsing & re-thinking public space. This year, let’s stop talking about it and started getting things done!

INSPIRE Collective would like to extend this call for art around the world, so if you know folks who would like to get involved…We extend the invitation to all creators to participate in ReUse Project 4: REUSE AND RESIST!

If you’re a conscious artist living on this planet and you can creatively relate to the ideas of ReThinking and ReUsing, then this exhibition is for you! Help us to make a positive social statement here in the Middle East & sustainable, independent artists will help to make this necessary statement world-wide. Open call for art ends February 1st.
For participation inquiries, entry submissions, call for art info, etc., please visit:
www.reuseandresist.tk
Also, for INSPIRE Collective past events and more: www.inspirecollectiveevents.tk

Remember, the open call for art ends February 1st.

NoLA Rising/IYTI - Toys for Tots Success

NoLA Rising Toys for Tots - 2010

NoLa Rising held the fourth annual "It's Yours, Take It" art swap this past Saturday at the Hi-Ho (located in the St. Claude Arts District). The concept has long been a part of the NoLA Rising philosophy...to give art to the people. It's Yours, Take It is a way for artists to give artwork to a community, whether through organized functions such as this or through more guerrilla means. NoLa Rising has adapted it's annual IYTI by requesting that those who choose to participate bring a brand new toy in a box.

The Hi-Ho Lounge kindly threw open her doors, arranged musicians, set up local crafts-people to help and NoLA Rising brought the art from the IYTI family of artists (that can be found on Flickr - link below), from the NoLA Rising family of artists and from local artists who dropped by throughout the day to drop off both toys and art. To all of them, we are eternally grateful for the participation and the spirit of community that persists throughout. NoLA Rising would also like to thank all of the wonderful people who brought toys and participated, bringing in 185 toys!

That's right...185 toys for donation! If you weren't able to make it out, we hope that you find your own way of giving this holiday seas. Again, we thank everyone for their continued support of NoLA Rising and the New Orleans community. Together, we can make the cultural renaissance flourish!
