In Case You Missed It … Street Art on the Navajo Nation

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

It turns out that abandoned structures, roadside craft stands, and propane tanks make great platforms for street art. All it requires is reimagining the landscape as part of the picture. For the past several years, Jetsonorama has been tagging Flagstaff, Tuba City, Kayenta, and places on the highways in between with transitory contemplative and laughing images of his neighbors. The High Country News and Brooklyn Street Art have featured the artist’s images, but there is nothing quite like seeing them for yourself. They are reminders of the warmth of Navajo community and declare that people live here.
