About this project
Acrobat is preparing for its New York City debut this summer. With your help, my mighty 700 pound, 8 foot tall bronze sculpture will cartwheel into TriBeCa and beyond!
Why Public Art? I am eager to release my work from the confines of the gallery space and connect with people as they walk their dogs, park their bikes, and enter/exit the subway. Additionally, this project will give me valuable professional exposure. After its yearlong exhibit, Acrobat will tour gardens & campuses around the country.
Why TriBeCa? The apex of Finn Park where West Broadway and Varick meet is the perfect setting to spotlight a bold work of art. Just a short bike ride from my own Chelsea studio, TriBeCa is a lively, artistic neighborhood where folks all across the eccentricity spectrum live in harmony.
Where does the money go? I am halfway to completing the project. I have finished scanning and enlarging my original 19" sculpture and have paid for molding the full-sized prototypes. Your donation will go directly towards funding bronze casting and installation, which is the most fun part.
What about your street cred, Dave? Have you seen the custom, Bustin skateboard I blast through NYC on?? I have been creating and exhibiting abstract sculpture in bronze, stainless steel, and resin for over twenty five years. My work is in private and corporate collections both here and abroad. I've completed commissions for filmmaker James Cameron, Pfizer Inc. and even the U.S. Navy. I am represented by Les Artisans in St. Barthélemy F.W.I., Old Main Gallery in Bozeman MT, and Ramey Fine Art in Palm Desert, CA.
Well what about the Swag, Dave? My "rewards" include a carefully curated selection of sculpture & jewelry created by me, right here in my Chelsea studio.
Right on. Where can I learn more? Easy. Visit my main website: www.artinjection.com.
Thank you for your interest in The Acrobat Project, I truly appreciate your participation.
Happy Sunny Day, Dave
Risks and challenges
I don't anticipate any particular risks or challenges associated with completing The Acrobat Project. I have over twenty years of experience casting bronze, including over a decade of collaborating with Polich-Tallix Foundry in Rock Tavern, New York; widely regarded as one of the premier art-foundries in the world. Casting logistics such as engineering, transportation, mounting and installation have been carefully worked out and arranged.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
