Meet me at the Rainbow Bridge!

Hey folks, we're back with a new project!

Q: Why are there so many songs (aka Playa art sculptures) about rainbows? 

A: There aren’t. I mean, there are lot of songs, but there’s only one 75 foot wide, 30 foot high, and 27,000 LED bedecked Playa rainbow in 2018: the Rainbow Bridge.

Thank you for being the community who got the giant flamingo off the ground last year. It simply wouldn't have happened without your support, love, and pledges. It was crazy, tiring, and beautiful, and we're back for more!  (Josh can't help it, basically: he wants to make big, fun, awe-inspiring art.)

Join us in getting the Rainbow Bridge to the Playa in August 2018! Inspired by sculpture from the 1939 Golden Gate International Exposition, this rainbow symbolizes the best in all of us coming together. It’s 15,000 lbs of steel and one mile of LEDs for a true bridge, one we can climb to the 30 foot apex, under which we can dream, by which we can animate the sound-reactive lights.

Help raise the $15,000 to fund materials for the Bridge--LEDs, steel (so much steel), wood, and paint. For your support, we’ll send fun rewards your way, from Rainbow Bridge stickers, to postcards from the Playa, to a 1:24 model (with lights!). Want more details? They’re on our new Kickstarter page, including ways to get involved.

Will you jump in today and back this project with us?

We can’t do this again without your love and support: thank you for being part of this community, and please, pledge to make the magic of the Rainbow Bridge materialize, and spread the word about this giant, multi-colored, sparkly, climbable, and joyous project.
