More Rad Artists Support The Illuminator! New Rewards!

As I write this, we have exactly 99 backers on this project!  You are the 99!

Support  just keeps coming.  First  the artist Swoon offered up a couple of gorgeous original artworks (see update #1 for photos), then Molly Crabapple offered up some signed giclees and a rare screenprint (again, see update #1), and now Rumur Films' Michael Galinsky and Suki Hawley have offered preview DVD copies of their latest documentary, Battle for Brooklyn. It's an awesome film, about corrupt real estate development and community resistance to it.  You know, the 1% versus the 99%.  We actually did an action in March to support the ongoing resistance to this project, and Rumur produced a sweet video in the aftermath.  You can watch it here on Vimeo.  A still video of the action is attached.

We're incredibly honored to have such amazing artists coming on board this campaign to keep The Illuminator rolling, and expanding these kinds of projects to other cities.  We believe that art and culture has an absolutely vital role to play in the kind of social transformation that we want and need. We need more of it.

Thank you for helping us to Illuminate the Nation!
