A local collective of artists/illustrators known as Hope Mountain have been publishing art books in Rochester for the past 4 years. Now they’re in the middle of Kickstarting this year’s Volume 5 and they’re asking for our help…
That alone would probably be cool enough, but what’s cooler, is if these guys raise $800 or more beyond their goal, they want to use the extra money to hold a book-release event and install artwork in one of the vacant bus shelters on Main Street… pending approval from the City, of course.
“We were looking at different ways of getting our work out there, and we knew there had been ideas tossed around for reusing the bus shelters. So if we can make this happen I think it’d be a good fit for us and a showcase of Rochester’s creativity,” said comic book artist and Hope Mountain co-creator Peter Lazarski.
I can’t tell you how excited I am at the proposition of getting more local artwork out on the street, and I hope you are too. So let’s help these guys out.
You can contribute to their Kickstarter here . But hurry – the campaign ends this week!
