Desperate times call for desperate measures. Cash For Your Warhol, by Hargo (aka Geoff Hargadon).
I’ve organized a little online show for the folks behind the Add-Art Firefox plug-in that riffs on advertising and selling out. For the purpose of this digital gathering, I’ve teamed up with eight brand name vandals — Stikman, Skewville, infinity, Hargo, eko, Celso, Cake and Abe Lincoln Jr. – to replace all of those annoying web ads with something waaaay artier and entertaining. (Haven’t heard of the plug-in? You can read all about it here and download it here.)
In this post, find examples of each of the artists’ “campaigns.” To see the complete series of pieces that each artist created (along with an explanatory write-up of the show), visit Add-Art.org.
Special thanks to Hana Newman for pulling this together.

‘Cuz all those Gap khakis bought a buttload of art: My very long photo essay of the Fisher Collection show at SFMOMA. Above, Spider, 1995, by Louise Bourgeois.
Untitled (Rome), 1971, by Cy Twombly.
Not part of the Fisher collection, but pretty fracking spectacular nonetheless: The Mondrian cake at the museum’s rooftop cafe. I ate the Thiebaud cake. Photos of art — and cake — after the jump.

I managed to get a sneak peek at Work to Do, the show that the boys over at the Endless Love Crew have been cooking up over at 112 Greene Street in SoHo. (See Martha Cooper’s preview pix here.) Featuring a super duper line-up that includes Ellis G, Avoid, Darkcloud, Stikman, Robots Will Kill and loads more New York City street and graffiti artists, the exhibit will be openings its doors to the public this Thursday, March 26th at 6 p.m. Check it out!
P.S.: I’ve got serious catching up to do on work, sleep and grocery shopping. No Digest today.
