Schools of illuminated Koi swim among the beautiful bonfires of the WaterFire Providence art installation on Sept 24.
Your support will help us revive our popular Illuminated Fish Sculpture Project and make it even more spectacular by increasing our "school" to 85 illuminated Japanese Koi (fish) for WaterFire's Clear Currents Water Celebration on September 24, 2011.
For the first time, this year WaterFire's Clear Currents will be part of Rhode Island Water Celebration Day, a day proclaimed by Governor Lincoln Chafee to mark the importance of water quality, access, and its uses that enrich the lives of everyone who lives in Rhode Island. Rhode Island Water Celebration Day was a project initiated by Leadership Rhode Island and all across the state, environmental nonprofit organizations will be hosting local events promoting it. The culmination of the day will take place on the evening of September 24 with over 100 canoeists paddling through the WaterFire Providence installation with illuminated Japanese Koi mounted on their canoes.
Funding of this Kickstarter project will go towards: fish and parts purchases and fabrication including new fish bodies, LED light systems, batteries, fish eyes, fish covers, wiring and various other supplies and fixtures.
Let's Go Fishing!
The 2009 Clear Currents Fish Canoe Project was one of the most beautiful and most talked about projects we have ever undertaken at WaterFire Providence and the more Kickstarter support we receive, the more illuminated Koi we can set free on the river Downtown Providence!
Thanks for supporting our Kickstarter project!
