About this project
you're invited to uncork a pop art portal
- @PORTALDELPOP is our dream come true Art Sanctuary where creatives can exhibit/make artwork for free! Our sanctuary will charge $0 rent & take 0% commission.
- YOU WILL TRANSFORM the lives of countless living artists, by funding the remaining start up cost for our building supplies and studio equipment.
- PLEDGE TO SECURE a creative shelter free from financial friction, before our portal of opportunity vanishes!
- IGGY✶POP PROMISES to personally premier a new body of sensual strokes - if we're successfully funded. Iggy's paintings pulsate provocatively - stimulating a primitive intimacy.
- THE GODFATHER OF PUNK ROCK will exhibit his rockstar artwork alongside H.R.✶GIGER, and other legendary celebrity artists at our Maiden Voyage Exhibition.
we eloped (sorry mom)
- WE COULD NOT JUSTIFY funding a celebration without a purpose larger than ourselves! We chose to invest in something that we can celebrate together everyday - rather than just once in our lives.
- INSTEAD OF a big reception, or an exotic honeymoon . . . we have used all of our savings to fund an art sanctuary where all creative beings can exercise their imagination free of charge!
- WE FORFEITED an extravagant wedding in hopes that our selflessness inspires you to pledge in honor of our Union!
S⎈S · · · – – – · · · your pledge is literally a lifesaver!
- ON CHRISTMAS MORNING WE WERE ROBBED of our steady source of income; the art gallery we opened was commandeered by creeps without warning! Heartless friends turned felons pirated our website/client list, deleted our email account, and tore up Jason's artwork.
IGGY⚡️reignites our lust for life
- IGGY✶POP IS OUR HERO! We were up sh!t creek without a paddle... until he vowed to captain our Kickstarter Campaign / Maiden Voyage Exhibition ! ! !
- JOIN OUR CREW so that we can infinitely ∞ perpetuate the portal of good fortune that Iggy has opened.
- AS A COUPLE WE HAVE 70 YEARS combined spent mastering a spectrum of creative skills, that have prepared us to open this Art Sanctuary
- WE'VE INVESTED in two adjacent work/live lofts that we are combining together — 75% of our square footage is dedicated to the Art Sanctuary
@PortalDelPop will ensure public access to creativity:
it's a multifaceted educational studio
- WE'LL WORK WITH LOCAL educators and students, in efforts to ensure that all students receive an educationally creative outlet regardless of federal funding
it's a pop-up gallery space
- WE'LL OFFER artists, art dealers, curators, musicians, and performers a sanctuary in which to practice their talent with no overhead
it's a place of healing
- WE'LL PROVIDE yogis, masseuses, mediums and other creative/alternative healers and physical instructors, a sanctuary to offer their services without overhead
it's a retreat for artists in residency to rewind
- WE'LL SPONSOR artists in residency along with creative leaders who host Airbnb Experiences - so that talented folks can provide immersive offerings to the public without overhead
- EVERYONE TOOK TO SOCIAL MEDIA to pine for these classic creators, who will forever rest in peace.
- WE AIM TO BREAK AWAY from the stagnation of sorrow - by harnessing that same public force of gratitude to validate living artists.
✅ together let's advocate to :
- rising rents that accompany gentrification - which ostracize local artists
- abolition of the arts in education
- defunding of professional artists and art institutions
⁂ WE ARE DIY RENOVATING our work/live loft in order to create our Art Sanctuary. We are doing everything ourselves, so that we can ensure the most efficient use of financial resources.
⁂ OUR GOAL IS TO PREEMPTIVELY PAVE THE WAY for a sanctuary where artists can thrive . . . before the rising tides of progress wash away the local color of our neighborhood.
✨our sublime panoramic view cultivates creativity✨
✨everlasting art sanctuary > one night wedding party✨
✨haughtee will craft one-of-a-kind handmade rewards✨
✨revenue from our fine art prints will fund future costs to sustain the sanctuary✨
✨we deposit ten dollars into an artist's PayPal account - for every fine art print sold with their artwork on it✨
✨professional product shots are fundamental to securing sales✨
✨biological fine art prints™ will fund additional costs needed to offer our sanctuary for free✨
JASON'S BIOLOGICAL FINE ART PRINTS™ are a timeless tribute beyond tattoo. His capacity to replicate minuscule detail with ink on flesh - transcends tattooing.
TATTOO PARLORS ARE INEVITABLY FILLED with disruptive sounds and harsh lighting, accompanied by unpredictable bustle and drama. Our sanctuary will offer tattoo artists around the globe access to an unrivaled privacy and tranquility - for themselves and their canvas.
KATY’S CAPACITY TO COLOR MATCH and keen sense of the human form, allow her to recreate true-to-life areola/nipples. Following a mastectomy recovering patients can enjoy a private rehabilitative experience - unavailable in a standard walk-in tattoo parlor.
✨ alternative kickstART kanvas designs will be added throughout the campaign
✨ we're painting a mural (based on the same Art Deco frieze) just a block away from our sanctuary!
Risks and challenges
Our home and the Art Sanctuary are conjoined twins; this eliminates challenges, by giving us 24 hour access to renovate the space, and also for the crafting of your rewards.
We've already completed renovation of our personal living space - so once we receive your support we can immediately begin to proceed with getting the sanctuary ready for public use by October 2017.
Death is the only thing that can stop us. Artists need a Sanctuary now more than ever. Our Art Sanctuary is 100% Guaranteed to happen. Instead of a wedding followed by first born child, I am using my cray cray female biological clock powers of creation to make this Sanctuary happen. THIS BRAIN CHILD IS OVERDUE!
If we are supported by more backers than we originally projected - it might cause us to have a slight delay regarding the production and delivery of your rewards. This is the best case scenario and the only risk/challenge that we foresee.
The risk that we refuse to acknowledge, but will mention because we've been asked for FULL TRANSPARENCY:
We have heaven on Earth to offer
but everyone might be too busy
texting the drama of purgatory,
and commenting on the conflicts of hell
We just hope you can pause
your Netflix & Chill long enough,
to pledge for our cause
to build a Sanctuary outside of the system
where Artists can have FREE will
