Internet Art & Activism- the #delValleMural

Miguel del Valle Mural
I am a Chicago-based digital media and performance artist. I created this grassroots, social media, portable mural in support of Miguel del Valle‘s campaign for Mayor.

follow hashtag: #delValleMural to see how the mural was created.

I am thinking that after the elections a Chicago Public Library would be a really nice home for the piece.  What do you guys think?

Invest in Chicago Public School Students

On January 30, 2011 Chicago Public school students and graduates (from Chicago’s Rogers Park neighborhood) got together to film a grass-roots/guerilla campaign ad to “tell it like it is,” and support the best candidate to improve our neighborhood public schools.

The footage used is filmed outside of Roger C. Sullivan High School and from WGN’s January 27th mayoral debate. The stars and script writers of this ad are Sullivan HS students (in order of appearance) Cristina Henriquez, Gerardo Aguilar, and Alexandra Alvarez.

On February 22, 2011 vote to improve our neighborhood schools – Miguel del Valle!

This ad was not paid for or endorsed by any candidate or candidate’s committee. Labor & love donated.
