Dear Friends,

We have reached a great milestone this weekend; there are over 350 of you, all backers of the "Eva Hesse" campaign, who have pledged more than $42K to date. Thank you SO much for your ongoing support and belief in the project. It keeps us going. 

You may have already noticed: we're a 'Staff Pick' at Kickstarter!  They have thousands of projects, and we're proud and excited that they picked us for this designation. Indeed, about 25% of our backing has come directly through the platform. Thanks Kickstarter!

As we enter the LAST 3 DAYS of the campaign, we have added another book to the rewards options:

“EVA HESSE, ONE MORE THAN ONE”, A 240 page color catalog created for the Hesse retrospective at the Hamburger Kunsthalle in 2013-14. Edited by Brigitte Kölle and Petra Roettig the book includes texts by Lucy R. Lippard, Cindy Nemser, Renate Petzinger, Robert Smithson, Gioia Timpanelli and Franz Erhard Walther, among others. In English and German. 

Our director, Marcie Begleiter whose essay "Eva Hesse and a Sense Of Space" is also included in the book, will sign them for our backers who chose that reward. 

And, if you have not done so recently, would you please SHARE OUR PROJECT with your networks? We've built this film on community - we can only move forward with your engagement. 

Thanks again - we look forward to our continuing conversation.

Marcie, Karen and the whole team at Eva H.
