I don't make art in a vacuum. My work is very much a reflection of the world we live in and the people I love, chock full of references to misadventures and fondly remembered gestures. (Hint: Try to find yourself!) We are fundraising in support of A RUIN. While we are proactively pursuing donated installation materials and have applied for emergency funding to achieve our final vision, we are seeking your generosity to help cover the following additional costs:

$1320 for 44 Hours of Rehearsal Studio Time
$5080 for Artist Fees
$2068 for Set Design & Costumes
$500 for Marketing & Administration
$583 for Contingency

$9506 Total
