Update #5

WE MADE IT, But We're Still Going!!!

3 comments

First off, a big THANK YOU to everyone who has donated and supported us to this point; we reached $25,000 with time to spare!

We couldn’t have done it without all of YOU: our friends, family, readers, and fellow art lovers. We’re hoping to keep raising what funds we can in the last 53 hours to put aside for video production, which requires expensive equipment as well as hours and hours to edit. 

Also, there are a ton of great rewards left for Western Edge, so if your friend has been eyeing that last Ehren Tool mug or a Jill Storthz woodblock print, let them know it’s not too late to donate! 

We truly appreciate all of our backers and the overwhelming support that we have received. Help us take WESTERN EDGE one step further to better document current West Coast art practice! -Klea, Nikki, Dana & Noe
