Six Shooters is a collective of six British music photographers and we're bringing their show to Los Angeles for BritWeek in April 2012
Hi, Welcome to our Kickstarter campaign! We are two LA based Australian lasses from the worlds of art and music who are trying to raise money to bring this fantastic exhibition of extraordinary music photography from London to Los Angeles. We have been fortunate enough to have the exhibition accepted as a part of BritWeek LA 2012 to be held at the legendary Mr. Musichead gallery on the Sunset Blvd April 21st - May 5th, 2012. There will be a reception party, special events, "meet & greets," music events and a book signing, (dates to be announced) to be held during the duration of the exhibition. We hope to see you there!
We fell in love this project and feel it is the perfect intersection of music and art - the two things that enrich the human experience and for which we have a great passion. We want to share this!
We have been working hard to find sponsorship to cover some of the costs involved in bringing this exhibition from London to Los Angeles however we still need your support! We need further help to cover the framing costs, freighting of the artwork, promotional materials, signage, catalogue printing & to bring these six talented artists over from London to be present at their first US exhibition!

ABOUT MR. MUSICHEAD GALLERY
