Artist View has focused its efforts on building an award-winning Social Entertainment Community by connecting artists and fans, but now the time has come for us to extend this community to the street level. As always, Artist View’s purpose is to foster a greater connection for artists at the local level. This connection might exist with your postal worker, your barista or even your financial adviser. With this in mind, Artist View has chosen to offer our pledge reward in the form of t-shirts, an active and powerful expression of our identities (and far less permanent than tattoos).
At Artist View, we know there are countless writers, actors, dancers, musicians, filmmakers and other creative artists who live in our communities that have the talent but have not found a way to express themselves in their daily lives. Artist View wants to bring all of these creative folks (and their fans) out of the shadows to come together to inspire, teach, support and entertain each other online and in the real world.
Supporters of the Artist View t-shirts might be the bearded gentlemen serving macchiatos at the local coffee shop, the bank teller with a sleeve of tattoos peeking out from under her shirt, the parent who is writing a novel on the weekends or the burgeoning fan who doesn’t believe they have what it takes to be an artist… yet.
Artist View chose to launch this project on Kickstarter because this way the community of artists and fans can get involved first hand from the ground floor or basement. This t-shirt is much more than a piece of clothing; it is an extension of your identity that can help you connect with other artists (and potential fans). If you feel like any of what we said hits home, please back this project and let us start building this community of artists and art enthusiasts. Let’s Create, Collaborate and Discover with each other one t-shirt at a time!

Artist View is made up of people just like you. We are independent, we want to CREATE something great, we want to COLLABORATE with awesome people and most importantly, we want as many creative folks (like you) as possible to be DISCOVERED.
We have invested in getting this project ready for launch, created the designs, set up the screens, secured the printing location and printed a small test batch of t-shirts. Your pledge will go directly into making the reward t-shirts and shipping them to you. Your support ensures that we have the funds to fulfill all of our kickstarter pledges and pay our printers to make the shirts. Once we exceed our goal, we will be able to develop new designs and make more products available so we can serve a wider and more diverse community of artists.
The Artist View t-shirt is made by American Apparel, an American-made company known for comfortable, high-quality clothing. The shirt is currently available in one color (black), but we offer a variety of different personalized options. At the very least the shirt will get you past the often-posted, "No shirt" part of “No shirt, No shoes, No service.”
Artist View is a social entertainment community for artists, related businesses and entertainment enthusiasts (fans). Artist View was created with the intention to help artists save time and energy from the clutter of the Internet. We want to see artists succeed at promoting the work they spend countless hours creating. With your help, Artist View will be the one-stop location for every artist’s needs.

Risks and challenges
1. Production of the Artist View t-shirts is simple: it's just a t-shirt, so rather than creating custom screens, it's a relatively straightforward product to make. The biggest challenge for Artist View actually will be all of you helping us make this campaign exceed our expectations. Support this campaign, and in return we'll send you a t-shirt to start building a real physical community. We're already working with a trusted printing company to make sure that no matter how many people pledge, everyone pledging at $35 or more will be contacted to get the information about their desired identity title, shirt size and address and will get their shirt as quickly and efficiently as possible when the campaign ends. If you back this project, we want to be sure you can start showcasing yourself and growing the artist community as soon as possible, as simply as possible.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
