What We Need & What You Get
COAHSI helps artists subsidize their installation needs. We need to raise approximately $2500 to help cover these costs. Raised funds will help cover permit fees, equipment rentals and help pay our artists and curators.
In turn you will receive cool perks and original artist work by LUMEN artists including:
- Brendan Coyle
- Ola Ignesiak & Andrzej Sieczkowski
- Victoria Gibson
- Jason Irla
- Steven Lapcevic
- Philip David Stearns, and
- Edmund Varuolo
YOU WILL GET TO BEAR WITNESS and BOAST SUPPORT of 50 + Artists who will transform mountains of gleaming white salt, derelict historic buildings, and the industrial waterfront of Staten Island into a surreal and spectacular luminous playground.
Your contribution supports cutting-edge, contemporary, new media art installation on Staten Island.
