I have been selected to a become a featured artist with RAW Artists (http://www.rawartists.org), on Nov 10, at the historical GLOBE THEATRE LA.
This is a very exciting opportunity to take part in for any young aspiring visual artist. I have never had my work exhibited before. I have submitted myself to many arts organizations to have my work displayed. Most charge exorbitant entrance fee's, or for you to pay hundreds and sometimes thousands of dollars to "rent" your spot in the line up.
RAW is an international organization dedicated to supporting emerging artists as they enter the commercial world. Their exhibits are funded by ticket sales solely, and I am tasked with all costs related to the display of my work. Approximately 3000 ware estimated to attend, along with Press Pass LA, LA Weekly, and other media outlets to help get my voice as an artist out there.
At this time, that is an undertaking very costly. I moved from Chicago to LA last year to pursue my dreams of documentary photography and filmmaking. I work 3 jobs, from catering, ubering, and odd film jobs to pay rent. LA is notoriously expensive, and making art is too.
I am asking for friends and family to help me achieve $500 to help pay for:
- Booth set up costs
- Photo prints Display prints
- Hooks Tape Flyers Cards
- And other miscellaneous related to making the display successful, inviting, and professional.

I would be forever thankful for your support and contribution.
Risks and challenges
The reality for me is if I can't meet these costs, even despite being curated, I will likely be unsuccessful in it's set up and development. And thus I will likely have to forfeit my participation.
I intend to do what ever I can to meet these costs, have this work presented, and achieve this stepping stone in my life as an artists and force of photographic nature.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
