It looks like we have met our funding goal with very... and I mean very generous pledges from Kickstarters like you!  
Kickstarter is still taking your pledges and very cool swag will be rewarded until Weds. 04.17 at 10:16am.
Pledge now before it's too late!

E3 Modern is a multi sensory gallery experience featuring modern art, modern furniture built by master furniture artisan Sol Adams and Hi-Fi vacuum tube audio (think your grandparents stereo but modern and custom built by Josh Stippich.

During his teenage years, Sol apprenticed with his father, artist David Adams. He went on to refine his skills in metal fabrication and welding, but still loves to create art. He now paints with his son and designs and builds custom, one of a kind furniture using metals and woods. Reflecting other interests, he enjoys using recycled materials as well.

Josh grew up with many interests. Among them was the love of music which he developed with his Mom and Stepdad David Adams. David was interested in audio and had a stereo system that was partially home built. This led to an interest in the design and workings of audio electronics and soon a decision to pursue the art and science of vacuum tube amplification and speaker design. For several years, Josh and Sol both worked for David, learning metal fabrication, welding and finishing. Those experiences and interests progressed to home built audio and other things. 

In 2001, Josh and David decided to take one of his first tube amps to a home built audio show in Seattle. Josh won the 'best in show' award for his work and instantly became an international sensation. From that start, he wanted to make a difference in the audio world and has built a number of ultra custom, high end audio systems for clients all over the world.

Both Sol and Josh lived their lives with parents who were involved in design and art and they developed interests that have developed into skills that persist today. Bringing creativity and good analytical and math skills to their projects, Josh and Sol have found they compliment each other to make a much stronger entity than either would normally be. And this is what they intend to bring to E3 Modern where they will offer creative and unique works to the public.

That’s where you come in! Help our community space become a reality. We have procured a historical building at 315 East 300 South in downtown Salt Lake City with 20 foot tall ceilings and amazing brick work that has stood for over 100 years, it was the first Ford Model T dealership in Utah and it needs a little work.

With 5000 square feet, we have lots of space to hold events, gallery shows, bat mitzvahs, dinners, listening parties, and audio recording sessions. 

E3 Modern is the brainchild of Josh, his wife Ivy and his brother Sol who have been a part of the art and music community of Salt Lake for 20 years.

We want to support our artist and musician friends and feature the furniture, lighting and vacuum tube audio equipment that Josh has lovingly crafted.

A very wise lady who's campaign Frisch (delicious vegan food) was funded on Kickstarter thought I should go into more detail about how funds would be spent, so here it is...

Risks and challenges

Honesty the biggest risk and challenge is ourselves… Juggling time at E3 Modern, building furniture, and amps, developing other uses for the space plus having a family with young children is a lot to take on! But luckily for us we are in Utah and Utah means big families and we are fortunate to have many different resources at our disposal.
