I have started this fundraising campaign to help defray costs associated with this exhibit. I have always dreamed of being able to put on an exhibit like this, and have been compiling historical costumes and memorabilia for nearly 20 years! In order to pull off this show, I need to pay for mannequin rentals, display fabrics, signage, crowd control devices (stanchions, etc), and rental/purchase of lighting equipment to show off the beautiful treasures within the grand lobby of the Loew's Jersey Theatre.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you in advance for taking the time to look at my project and for your consideration in helping fund this new exciting opportunity. As they say--every little bit helps, so don't be shy or worried that you can't contribute very much. Every penny will help make this exhibit a reality!
Risks and challenges
The biggest challenge on this project is going to be the lighting! The lobby spaces are very large and the lighting and electrical systems are outdated. I'm having to source inexpensive low wattage units to keep from blowing the buildings circuits! Once we solve the lighting issue everything else is in the bag so to speak.
Luckily my years of hoarding and collecting costume pieces and accessories will finally serve a purpose. Every costume will be presented as complete and fully accessorized as it would have been in it's original production.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
