We were there, and it was brilliant. Grateful thanks to David Solnit and Julie Searle for their time, dedication and the creation of such sterling artwork.


What’s bad about the U.S. (Wall Street, big business, the Republican party, Establishment Democrats, the Mainstream media, the Trump administration, Christian fundamentalists etc.) is really, really bad to the point of being downright Evil. What’s good about the U.S. (most of the average people, most of it’s progressive activists, artists and the arts) is amazing and right now it would seem that there is an epic battle being waged between the two that will determine the ultimate fate of the world and all life on it. Which side are you on?

O-gee I wish it were there to last forever. This demonstrates why art is sooooo important, during the 60’s art was everywhere and artists names were household names. What do we have now? Sure, in some places there are murals and such but what message? Pictures carry messaging way deeper within someone, worth 1000 words, as you have seen. Bravo, San Fran, city by the Bay.

How many homeless did you step over on your way to paint your art? California, full of hypocrites, good at telling others how to live. God bless the wall streeters who pay for your handouts! Oh that’s right, you don’t believe in God.

The toxic chemicals in solar panels include cadmium telluride, copper indium selenide, cadmium gallium (di)selenide, copper indium gallium (di)selenide, hexafluoroethane, lead, and polyvinyl fluoride. Additionally, silicon tetrachloride, a byproduct of producing crystalline silicon, is highly toxic .

What will we do with all this in 20 years?

BTW, is all that paint non toxic, or will it just wash to the Bay?

hi jack b, welcome to cd! To answer your question, you can read the article and find out.


Rage with art appeals to many senses. Art Rage brings to conscientiousness what many cannot articulate. Take a picture of yourself near a mural and turn the picture into a postcard and then send to legislative office so they can have a conversation about the Art Rage, your Art Rage. Power in pictures. Power in postcard. Snail-mail slower but more hands on.
