About this project
We did it! Thanks to your generosity, CHERYL is going mobile. Thanks to all who have donated, and to those who haven't, the campaign is still open and accepting pledges until Tuesday June 19 at noon. Any additional funds raised beyond our $4K goal will still go directly toward this project, and will only provide us with greater resources to realize this project to its full potential.
CHERYL is a four-person, semi anonymous, often cat-masked artist collective based in Brooklyn, New York.
CHERYL’s video and performance work has been featured through various installations and events with the Museum of Modern Art, MoMA PS1, the Whitney Museum of American Art, the Brooklyn Museum, The Jewish Museum, The Museum of Arts and Design, The Bruce High Quality Foundation, Eyebeam Art and Technology Center, and Islington Mill (UK).
CHERYL has been featured in/on The New York Times, New York Magazine, Paper Magazine, The New York Observer, Out Magazine, W (magazine), Time Out New York, Black Book Magazine, The Village Voice, NBC and RAI (Italian television) among other outlets.
This summer CHERYL has a dream to produce FREE mobile dance parties around New York City.
CHERYL plans to use the funds raised from our Kickstarter campaign to realize this dream of staging mobile dance parties around the city at any place or time. Killing time line-dancing waiting for the Ft. Tilden Beach ferry? Midtown office afternoon button down street disco? High kicks in the Home Depot parking lot by the Gowanus? Everyone could use a high energy dance party in their lives, so why confine these events to a Saturday night in a bar or a club?CHERYL plans to use the funds raised from our Kickstarter campaign to purchase a vehicle and a powerful soundsystem, allowing us to stage and produce FREE mobile dance parties around New York City this summer.
We will require funding for vehicle purchase, registration and maintenance, as well as gas, and potential bail money when we get arrested for multiple noise complaints for throwing a dance party outside the DMV in Herald Square. We will also use the funds to purchase art supplies to paint and CHERYLify the vehicle and identify it as the CHERYLmobile. Lastly, we will use the money we raise from Kickstarter to purchase a speaker system strong enough for city street dance floor euphoria.CHERYL THANKS YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT!
