Danny Skinz work in progress
Operation Art Box update
2012 Art Boxer and internationally renowned muralist Danny Skinz actually disassembled his Weekly Alibi newspaper box and bolted three sides of it to a wall, creating ready made detail panels that will also stand alone as one piece -if he ever gets the box back together.
Seriously though, look for Danny's piece as well as eleven other brilliantly modified Alibi boxes at Boro Gallery next month, where there will also be a month long group show (opening Friday September 7th) featuring non-circulation themed work by 2012 Art Boxers.
Fourth of July Alibi Distribution
You can't ride public transportation, but you may read this NuCity Publication
In order to give New Mexicans enough free time to properly celebrate America's independence from Britain by drinking, shooting guns, and lighting things on fire, all government institutions and many businesses are closed on Wednesday July Fourth. The offices of Weekly Alibi are closed... except the Circulation Department. We don't take holidays.
While the majority of this week's distribution will take place on Thursday the Fifth, readers will be able to find fresh, crisp copies of the latest Weekly Alibi at select locations. Here is a selection of places to go tomorrow when you absolutely must have i.27 of the Alibi, featuring interviews with former New Mexico Governor and current third-party presidential candidate Gary Johnson:
Frontier, Whole Foods, UNMH, Mannies, Isleta Lakes Bait shop, Defined Fitnesses, The Range Cafes in Albuquerque. Many of our boxes along Central Ave. in Nob Hill and Downtown will be stocked on Wednesday July Fourth as well. Those include boxes in front of the Albuquerque Transportation Center, Flying Star #1, Century 14 Theater and, of course, the former Report Station art-box in front of Weekly Alibi's offices. -On that note, the deadline for submitting your idea for transforming an Alibi newspaper box into something beautiful, scary or otherwise is July 19th.

Found In Alibi Box!
Righteous bumper sticker
The Alibi's circulation staff and drivers find all kinds of stuff in Alibi boxes, but usually it's some artist or musician's promotional postcards, flyers for lost cats or some jackass tai chi master posting his bullshit pleas for students over the display. I have a collection of knives from the box near the courthouse downtown. There are many varieties of gnarly also deposited in boxes but I don't want to encourage you savages so let's skip to one of the more interesting items found in an Alibi box. Dunno who made these bumper stickers, but we salute you!
