Kickstarter Launch for “Louis” a project for Artprize 8

Godfrey ArtPrize North medium for web

Please consider contributing to our Kickstarter for Louis, one of four Featured Public Projects commissioned for Artprize 8 the radically open international art competition that opens September 21, 2016 in Grand Rapids, Michigan. As an artist working in the public realm, I am honored to share Vandenberg Plaza with Calder’s La Grande Vitesse, the first public art work commissioned under the auspices of the then fledgling National Endowment for the Arts.

The generous award from Artprize and support from my University only covers part of the expenses of my ambitious project, and just as local funding and support was critical to the Calder commission almost 40 years ago, I appeal to you, and the community, for the additional support to make Louis a reality. We have terrific rewards for our backers. Please take a moment to visit our Kickstarter, and help fund Louis, a project for Artprize 8.
