The Goal: Have local Bushwick artists paint then inflate and display 4+ air dancers as an installation on the roof of 228 Evergreen.   The installation will welcome visitors to the neighborhood during the weekend of Bushwick Open Studios (June 5-7).  

Why 228 Evergreen? Our roof has commanding views on the M train as it rolls into the Central Ave station, right at the beginning of Bushwick, making it a perfect location for an installation. 

Why Air dancers? They are awesome, huge and hilarious.   

Who is going to paint the dancers?  The artists of 228 Evergreen will definitely be doing some painting.  Several Bushwick artists including Gazoo "To The Moon" and a dude named Jon are interested and waiting to hear about funding..  If you are a Bushwick artist and are interested in painting a dancer let us know.   

Each dancer costs roughly $150 to pull off so every $150 above our goal we will add another dancer to the family! 

Risks and challenges

Most difficult part is raising the funds fast enough for the Air Dancers to arrive in time! Also having the money to put deposits down for renting blower fans. Painting is the easy part.
