LOOP Arts Fundraising Campaign
LOOP Arts: A residency for artists, by artistsLOOP Arts runs a print residency that gives San Francisco Bay Area artists free access to a large format inkjet printer to create work for a scheduled exhibition. We had 13 artists come through and print exhibitions for free between January and August 2013 before running out of ink and money. After taking a break to recharge, we're coming back asking the community to help support this great resource. We're asking for enough money to cover a full year of artists (we average around 2 a month). We take nothing. All donations go to ink and rent to help support our artists.
We are hoping to raise $10,000, a HUGE amount of money, but this will keep us running for over a year and will allow us to serve no less than 24 artists with free printing facilities. If we end up with less, we help as many artists as we can until the money runs dry. If we end up with more, it all goes towards helping more artists.
For more information, please visit our website at http://looparts.com.
In conjunction with this crowd-sourcing campaign, we have an print sale of individual prints coming soon at: http://looparts.com/auction.html.
PLEASE HELP SUPPORT LOCAL ARTISTS!
How did LOOP Arts come about?
LOOP Arts was born out of a series of conversations between Ryan Hendon & Adam Thorman about how to find ways to continue to make work after leaving jobs where we had access to professional large format printers. We realized there was a gap in services for emerging artists and decided to apply for grants to get a printer for our community to be able to use, and LOOP Arts was born.
