Thanks to my BIG homie Kyle McCarty for this! @Tkmccarty
Here is the new Kickstarter project I’m working on here in Seattle! It needs all the support it can get. This neighborhood needs it! Here is a little description of the site and the project:Martin’s Way is a 501-C3 non profit organization that believes in providing a good life for all. They form partnerships that improve the standard of living for those in fringe neighborhoods. That’s why they approached urban artist Jeff “Weirdo” Jacobson shortly after forming The People’s Republic of Music (PRoM). PRoM at White Center, is Martin Way’s version of the Broken Windows Theory – where policing is replaced with community engagement through art and culture. A social minded investor recently lent a building in White Center to Martin’s Way. The space was once a run-down tavern – the blight of White Center for decades. However, the investor saw promise in the organization and gifted them an area free of rent, for 5 years. Martin’s Way aspires to renovate the space into an arts center for the community (PRoM). PRoM will feature a recording studio, digital catalog library, stage and more. It will be a space for musicians, film makers, animators, video game developers and writers. PRoM will connect artists and foster multimedia collaborations. Martin’s Way turned to Jeff Weirdo to design the building’s exterior. Weirdo, then brought on Fred Wildlife Refuge to help get the word out to the arts community. All proceeds raised from this Kickstarter campaign go toward the costs of materials, prep and labor associated behind creating this mural for the community. By helping fund this Kickstarter Campaign, you make the PRoM mural a work of art that is truly created for the people, by the people. Members of the community not only benefit from the organization, but by the positive externality of inclusive art.
In short, I need your support to get this neighborhood in Seattle lit up with a new piece of public art!SUPPORT THIS PROJECT HERE
