A Dollar & A Dream NYC was started by photographer Tasha Bleu in efforts to raise funding for a collective art show in NYC.

...it’s time that we all start dreaming together and begin a new reality.


PROJECT:

Started by photographer Tasha Bleu, A Dollar & A Dream NYC is a Kickstarter campaign filmed by SOS Boston to raise funding for an art show at a Brooklyn gallery on 11.11.11. It will be a 14 day campaign with a goal of $3,000 to directly cover travel, supply and event costs. The art show will be a collaborative effort of 11 females total from LA to RI coming together in NYC to put on a free to the public event to inspire others of our generation and to foster social change through the use of colorful artwork during a dark time in music and fashion.

LATEST UPDATES ON THE PROJECT SINCE WE HAVE FILMED:

-The goal is to raise $3,000 in FOURTEEN DAYS not THIRTY anymore.

-The NY venue will not confirm until the campaign is fully funded.

-There will be a discussion panel added to the schedule for the night.

-There will be a SPECIAL female guest host as well if fully funded.

Also check out the Tumblr for this project and Vimeo channel.

One last and very important note to the world:

This will be my first and last art exhibit. I really want to share this moment with the world on this night. You don't get one moment twice in life and whether the world will be reading about it, tuning in or joining us at the event; I want this project to be one step forward in how we all live and create.  Whether this project raises three hundred dollars or three million dollars I feel successful knowing that people were moved by my actions.

Signed, Bleu
