Our Kickstarter was approved and launched yesterday, and you can find it here: Our KickStarter Page
If you aren’t familiar with Kickstarter, it is a perfect addition to our community project feel, in that it allows fellow art lovers to become a part of our project, while receiving rewards for their participation.
Gifts offered for donations starting as low as $1 begin at our sincere thanks, and go as high as being painted into the artwork itself – with many, many levels in between at $5, $10, etc…
If you do not have a dollar to pitch in at the moment, we completely understand, and would appreciate your help in simply forwarding on the link to others. All those little donations matter greatly, especially when friends and friends of friends are chipping in.
On a sidenote: If you would like to hep out in other ways, from donating junk from your garage, to being there for the hands-on work such as the build, we’d love to hear from you. You can reach us through our contact form, linked at the top of this page.
What are some of the sorts of things we are looking for? Well, we’ll be getting a number of antique connecting rods from Ken and Helen of Model A Restorers (“Saving the Past for the Future” which is exactly in tune with our goals), we’re looking for cogs, gears, metal wheels, work gears, rack gears, hemisperical cup anemometers, axles, old metal light posts, bits of old phonographs, and really… pretty much anything that we can save from a scrap heap and turn into art. Here are some photos of pieces we’ve picked out, but haven’t yet acquired:
