Thank you for your past support to the North Brooklyn Public Art Coalition!
Next month we are launching our third public art installation, Future Phenomena, and today marks one week remaining in the kickstarter campaign to raise $800 toward the installation.
Since the beginning of our campaign new costs have arisen due to the need for a permit by the city. Your donation will go directly to the hiring of a structural engineer to install the piece according to NYC Department of Buildings Standards. We have come this far in constructing the piece with volunteers, artist donations, and local sponsorship. Even after donations from Amanda Browder and other artists, a local architecture firm, and members of the community, we still need to raise money for the city mandated structural engineer inspection. Help us make this goal!
If we don't raise the remaining $400 we may lose the kickstarter funds already committed. So please consider a $10 donation today: you will receive a small swatch of the final artwork, as well as an artist card from Amanda Browder.
Interested in other Future Phenomena rewards to help us reach our goal?
Donate $100 and we will send you a square foot of the final artwork, as well as a print of Future Phenomena.
Donate $60 and we will send you a limited edition, chevron-patterned tote bag designed by Amanda Browder.
Donate $25 and we will send you a print of Future Phenomena.

After hosting three sewing sessions open to the public since April, Future Phenomena is well under way! Amanda Browder’s chevron-patterned fabric structure is a collaborative effort among donors and volunteers to sew donated materials piece-by-piece into the final 850 square foot artwork, which will be installed on a Greenpoint building on June 19th. Your donation will go toward the installation costs, including the hiring of a structural engineer to install the piece according to NYC Department of Buildings Standards.
THANK YOU if you have already donated your time, fabric, or support. Without you, this project would not happen. So please consider sharing this with your friends to help make Future Phenomena a reality next month.

Thank you, as always, for your support. And save June 19th for the launch on Manhattan Avenue!
