Partnering with The Headquarters, a headshop on University Drive and Ash Ave, Jon Haddock’s project consists of two images.  The first is a photograph installed in the gallery cataloging headshop ephemera collected by the artist from roughly 1972 to 1982 titled 1974; the second, titled 2010, is located in the poster racks at The Headquarters. The image was arrived at through an interview with the owner of The Headquarters regarding his best selling posters, and how the themes have changed over time. As the artist was informed, Bob Marley posters have always been great sellers, but more recently posters portraying bad guys and gangsters have been the trend. The artist set forth to create a contemporary image in line with the trend.  The subject of the second piece is Edgar Valdez Villarreal – La Barbie – the American born high-school football star, who is the alleged leader of Los Negros, and until recently fighting for control of the Beltrán-Leyva Cartel.

Park Here creates a contest to encourage users to participate. By filling out a quick five question survey about parking in downtown Tempe, individuals become eligible to win a Downtown Tempe Community gift certificate and a drawing from the artist, which are created based upon responses of individuals to the survey. The artist is creating a drawing a week from September 6, 2010, through January 24, 2011. Each weekly winner will be announced on the Downtown Tempe Community Facebook page and in the exhibition space at the ASU Art Museum, where each drawing will also be on display. Winners will be invited to a closing of the exhibition to pick up a gift certificate and drawing.  Signage and information on the project will be displayed at the entrance and exits of the parking garage, as well as handed out by parking monitors throughout Tempe.
