April 24, 2017
Event Name: ArtPrize 2016
EVENT DATE Sep 21, 2016
Sculpture Lovers, Family, Friends and Social Media Followers,
We are 82% funded (with Michigan Lottery match and contributions received through the mail) We are less than $1500 from our goal. It is a monumental task to move and install The Last Whistle at ArtPrize in MI.
The sculpture is being cast at the foundry in Utah. The cost to transport (1600 miles) and install/uninstall ArtPrize8 is estimated at $5500. Additional costs to attend and promote the sculpture during the 19 day event will cost over $2000. We appreciate any contribution to help recover these costs to share a sculpture that honors the honest blue collar worker who made America with 400,000 people at ArtPrize in Michigan.
