LOOK FOR SPECIAL EDITION POSTCARDS BY SUSAN SILTON INSIDE OUR MARCH/APRIL 2017 ISSUE

Susan Silton, Delivery Systems, 2017
A special edition for Artillery consisting of eight inserted postcards addressed to current U.S. Supreme Court Justices.

Los Angeles–based artist Susan Silton produced this series of postcards in conjunction with her public art project, “Utility,” which is sponsored by the Playhouse District Association (first installment 2011; updated installment 2016). “Utility” is currently installed on five utility boxes along Colorado Boulevard in Pasadena, California. The brightly colored vinyl image/text panels pay homage to freedom of expression, incorporating classic quotes attributed to Cesar Chavez, Frederick Douglass, Benjamin Franklin, Eleanor Roosevelt, bell hooks, Martin Luther King, Jr. and Supreme Court Justices Benjamin Cardozo and Robert Jackson.
