We are so excited to announce that the Art on BART Kickstarter has officially launched! After receiving more than 80 submissions from so many incredible Bay Area artists, we found six of the exceptionally talented who don’t mind letting us offer copies of their works to backers on Kickstarter.
The countdown is on and we only have 29 days to raise the $6,498 needed to rent six BART train cars and bring local art to 1 million people during the month of March. We got our first backer only minutes after I clicked the ‘launch’ button so we’re off to a great start, but we’re going to need the help of everyone with a passion for public art to pull this off!
We really believe that replacing ads with art can help make so many bad days better and introduce hundreds of thousands of people to artists creating near them. And the best part is, we’ll be able to collect our first reflections on the WanderArt app by putting the art directly in front of people, right where they commute.
