Art as Fashion: A Mural Transformed into Handbags

>> Thursday, September 10

~UPDATE 10/15/09: Congratulations, Andrea, on your successful project!

Andrea Tobin is an artist living here in NY that had a great idea: she has painted a HUGE mural on canvas which she is now hoping to transform into fifty limited-edition handbags. I love it!

Project site: A Mural Transformed into Handbags
Pledge goal: $4000
My pledge: $1
Deadline: October 15

About is a website run by five guys based in Brooklyn, NY. The concept is simple: A person has a project that needs a little boost to get started. This person posts their project to and promises rewards based on how much money people pledge to their project. Other people sign into and pledge money towards projects they favor. If a project meets or exceeds the funding goal by the deadline, the backers' credit-cards are charged (these are donations, not loans, btw) and the person begins their project and sends out the rewards to their backers upon completion of their project. Projects can be anything really, but often include producing a music album, saving collections from the dump, funding a trip, and even making a mural into handbags. Learn more.
