360 View (Almost) of the Exhibit and a Kickstarter Update

I shot a little instagram video of the show before we drove (well I drove; Christa pulled an all-nighter to finish up hanging the art so she slept) back to North Carolina. Watching this video is not quite like being there (scale is essential to this one) but it does give a sense of the work and the space. Can't wait to see some of you at the artist's reception in Bluffton on Sept. 22nd.

The Kickstarter campaign is going well. We've almost reached our goal, which is really exciting. The show is up and the gallery is open but there's still a lot to do (and costs to incur) planning the Sept. 22 event, preparing for a possible documentary, getting people organized to help give away the art, getting the word out, etc. So if you want to help us finish things up, get to the Kickstarter page soon. Once we hit our goal, the money we receive goes towards giving away the art at the reception. (Alternately, if you want to put money towards us giving away art, wait a couple days and then pledge!)

One other thought -- most of the backers so far for this thing have given pretty decent sized amounts (from my perspective anyway, it's relative), but part of what's cool to me about the whole crowd sourcing thing is that people can give very small amounts. It's about being part of something, not about how much money you have to give, so if you're excited about this thing but are broke, give two bucks. Or if that's too much write us a note. We've appreciated the feedback we've gotten so far, and some of the best encouragement that's helped us push through on this has come from people giving advice or offering to help. Funds are important, but no more so than the rest of the pieces that bring vision to reality.
