Our seventh issue, Urbanisms: Master Plans, will finally see the light of day in two weeks, and will continue the examination of our current urban situation and what lies beyond it: the city’s past and its future; the suburban, the exurban, the frontier. The issue will focus on planning and its discontents and will include an artist project by Lucy Raven exploring a grand Utahan suburb nurtured by copper-mine tailings; an exposition of a planned mega-eco-city in the desert Southwest by Thomas Moran and Rustam Mehta of the VPL Authority; a new recording from the band Zs; and conversations with architects Teddy Cruz and Kazys Varnelis and between architect Rene Peralta and writer Bryan Finoki.
Thanks to our friends at the Internal Revenue Service, Triple Canopy is now officially a nonprofit 501(c)3 organization. If you value the work we've been doing and would like to enable us to do more of it—and publish with greater frequency—please consider making a tax-deductible donation here. While you can give as much (or as little) as you'd like, we're offering two convenient ways of classifying your commitment:
$50 SUPPORTER-level membership includes free admission to select public programs throughout the coming year; Wrong Place, Right Time, a limited-edition print by José León Cerrillo; and a Triple Canopy heavyweight tote bag made from recycled bottles.
$25 FRIEND-level membership includes free admission to select public programs throughout the coming year or a Triple Canopy heavyweight tote bag.
Next month we'll announce our first commissions program, which will support the development of research projects, public programming, Internet-specific artwork, and new-media reporting and is generously funded by a grant from the Brown Foundation, Inc., of Houston.
