2. Demographics- why no Northwestern States...Montana, Dakotas etc?
3. Why are you packing up the sign between cities. Why not have it moving across the country on the back of a truck so it is visible constantly?
4.You say that past work has been in 'international news,tv,print and online' and that you have advanced to a point where you are turning down opportunities. You probably have a strong network and great exposure already so why Kickstarter?
5.Once you post on Kickstarter...what then? You tweet, facebook, blog and email directing followers and network to site and then wait for rolling stone effect?
6. Ditto to Kristy's #2 question
7. Do you have a diologue that goes beyond 2012 ?
8. Are you positive toward the future of the arts in the USA. Do you think there will the imbalance will shift again?

1. Do you think that, in the long term, reliance on crowdfunding will make it even more difficult to secure public funding for the arts?
2. If that is the case, what do you think the solution would be? Crowdfunding is obviously a great short-term solution, so how can we make use of it without negatively affecting the long-term chances of government funding?
3. What can we, as individuals, do to push for and secure public funding for the arts?
2. Are you able to fully support yourself as an artist?
3. Would you recommend kickstarter for an aspiring artist post-grad?

1. How did you go about picking the city's you project is going to
2.Do you think you will keep asking questions like this in your work to come? Do you see more billboards in your future?
3. What are some pros and cons about using kickstarter? Would you recommend this site?
2. You say that you're "not concerned about the quality or types of projects supported with this funding model." Do you think that there needs to be/ or should be a kind of filter, or do you think that will be taken care of on its own?
3. What is the next project you want to work on and potentially put up on kickstarter?
2. What jobs have you done besides being an artist?
3. What inspires you to keep working? ( what keeps you motivated?)
4. What work do you enjoy most?
5. Any last words for aspiring artist?

John Natsoulas gallery in Davis California. I would contact John Natsoulas. This would probably be a venue that I would need to have finished my BFA show for and probably would not get a solo show, it would be good to do some sort of a group show or maybe show a few pieces during CCACA. Because he uses his gallery as somewhat of a center for the conference.
Fat Cat Café show in Tahoe city. I would re contact Jaclyn wonznicki (530) 414-1541 and tell her I am ready for another show . very realistic during the next 6 months

1. Go to kickstarter.com, and look at their summary of how to start a project here.
2. Look at Steve Lambert's project "Make Capitalism Work For Me," here. Make sure to check out the "updates" tab in addition to the main page. Steve will be Skyping in to the class on Thursday.
3. Read the handout I provided, which is an interview with Steve about Kickstarter that hasn't been published yet. He has some interesting things to say about the Kickstarter funding model in relation to other arts funding infrastructures.
4. On this class blog, post at least three intelligent questions for Steve. They can be about his experience working with Kickstarter, specific questions about the "Capitalism" project itself, or more general questions about arts funding raised by his interview.
5. Look through Kickstarter to find a project that seems similar in scale and format to a project you could potentially launch on Kickstarter, and post a link to that project on the class blog.

a few of the pieces i definitely didn't gravitate to especially being those from someone who's been through the MFA program but then again i didn't know what their work was like in school.
after listening to some of the other students it seems as though listening to the lecture was either too much reality for them or the artists themselves weren't "succeeding" as much as they thought they would after graduating.
but i don't see why everyone assumes they're just going to be an artist because they graduate... it seems to me as though you'd have to find some kind of creative job or outlet, a steady way to make money, and then keep your connections to galleries and programs like ours that would let you show your work.
one piece in general that i actually did like was the 3d sort of paintings of buildings... incorporating the photos in such an interesting layering while the background pushed and pulled those images in, creating such a unique space.
