About this project
Help make a large-scale and interactive public art sculpture become a reality while also adding to your art collection with valuable works of art by artist Megan Mosholder!
TOGETHER we have the opportunity to create a memorable and interactive sculpture that encourages cultural compassion and environmental awareness. With your CONTINUED SUPPORT, I can afford to install hundreds upon thousands of yards of luminous, rippling and glowing ribbon onto the 5/3 Bank building located at 111 Lyon Street in Grand Rapids, Michigan. I will also be using the funds raised through this Kickstarter to purchase over 99 blacklight bulbs and hire the crew I need to install this dynamic, three-dimensional drawing.
WITH YOUR DONATIONS AND CONTINUED SUPPORT I can afford to hire the crew, heavy equipment and supplies necessary to make this amazing artwork a reality! The minimum amount that I absolutely need to raise is $6,000. However, I hope to raise closer to $10,000. Any and all contributions will be greatly appreciated and hugely rewarded.
ABOUT THE PROJECT: Illuminated with blacklight, this artwork will be seen from all sides of the 5/3 Bank Plaza in Grand Rapids, Michigan. An additional tented sculpture will radiate out from the building created from various widths of loosely weaved fabric through industrial bungee staked into the raised concrete planters alongside the building to visually invoke the meandering river waters of the Grand River. Audience members will be able to walk under and through hundreds of feet of rippling and glowing strips of fabric. The piece is entitled in Native Odawa/Ojibwe dialect: "Mijimendan vta Ziibi (Remember the River)". The title serves as a reminder of the importance of Grand Rapids’ history but also its future: respect for all races of people and care for the environment vital to our survival.
THE REWARDS: I am offering a series of original prints, t-shirts, signed limited edition fine art silkscreen prints and beautifully hand-crafted paintings in exchange for YOUR CONTINUED SUPPORT to help cover the costs of this sculptural installation project.
T-SHIRT: Show your support through your sense of fashion! These limited edition, hand printed t-shirts come in black (S, M, L) and are printed with silver ink. They depict the MEGAN MOSHOLDER original "Twisted Vortex" drawing on the front.
SCREEN PRINT - TWISTED VORTEX: (Glow-in-the-Dark White and Metallic Silver Ink - Edition of 75). In appreciation of your continued support, I'm going to send you a signed, limited edition 18" x 18" MEGAN MOSHOLDER screen print. These stunning prints are only being offered for this special price on KICKSTARTER. This fine art screen print is derived from spatial studies I've conducted in the studio and emulate my three-dimensional ideas on a two‐dimensional plane.
