Mr. CRO has a new project in the works on Kickstarter.com – a new online funding platform for artists, designers, filmmakers, musicians, journalists, inventors, etc. He’s attempting to raise funds to host a 3-day Run, Blago, Run Pop-up Art Show! in Chicago in July. Based on the mysterious stencils of the disgraced former governor jogging in a track suit and looking over his shoulder which are finding their way onto buildings and alleys around the city. Pledge as little as $1 in the show to make sure it happens and get fresh incentives in return. In addition there will be an open-call for artists to interpret the jogging pose juried by actress Joan Cusack & legendary house dj/producer Derrick Carter. 10% of sales from the show will be donated to Street Level Youth Media street-level.org
“This project will only be funded if at least $3,500 is pledged by Jul 01, 12:00am.” Which is soon. Give ’em a few bucks, I’m really interested in seeing this happen.
