This year I am bringing my first installation to the playa, but I am having a hell of a time with funding. I ran 2 fundraisers in my community, both failed miserable. What I learned, and I learned a lot, is that I can throw a good party but getting people to come and cough up money for something labeled a fund raiser is murder in Vegas; maybe suicide is a better word.
I see the folks in SFO have some really supportive and art driven communities, while many people here are struggling so bad and other issues they just don't have room to be supportive.
Well, in a recent release of the JRS they talked about Kickstarter.Com for art funding. I posted my project at the beginning of the month and getting word out for it is going slow. Maybe some peeps on this board will be kind enough to help me spread the word and maybe reach my goal.
I found a company here in Vegas called GreenerVegas.Org that has a lot of materials for art and art projects that recycle and repurpose materials. I am going to visit them Monday to see if I can get some of my materials from them.

That's it as it appears on Kickstarter. I am also listed on the Burning Man site, BurningMan Earth and Support Art Projects. I'm all official, but have limited fiscal resources to finish. Logistics and the plan is all set. It's all materials needed now.
Peace & Love all...
