Abraham Ingle will be showing in the 2012 NW Biennial at the Tacoma Art Museum

For years I've brought free public art to the world. These projects have often been at my own expense, or occasionally funded by grants. Now I have the opportunity to show my work in a proper art museum - but I need your help to make this happen!

TAM will be presenting two of my works: Pants Exchange, and Fake Up, at the 2012 NW Biennial from January 21st to May 20th.

I couldn't be more thrilled to be given this opportunity, but there is no budget to help make this dream a reality. Please help me do it!

Pants Exchange is an urban koan and the first project I ever did, long before I was told "psst, this is art."

Fake Up is an interactive salon, complete with a photographer and beautician, stocked with the same supplies used by incarcerated women to adorn themselves: coffee grounds, skittles, crystal lite, etc...

By supporting my Kickstarter campaign, you will help me to realize this long held dream, and support public art. Your contribution will enable me to pay for the staff, supplies, and travel expenses necessary for me to pull this off. I simply can't do it without you. In return, you will be entitled to treats and presents available only to my Kickstarter supporters, and will recive my undying gratitude.

Be part of it today!

Where Does the Money Go?

Pants Exchange is going to cost roughly $500: Supplies will run $150, transportation $50, lodging $100, documentation $100, and $50 in time and materials - including press. My time is largely donated.

Fake Up is going to cost roughly $1,000: Film is $100, Supplies are $100, Transportation will be $100, Lodging will be $100, and I'll need to pay a Professional Beautician and Professional Photographer $600. Again, my time is donated.
