Local artist Jen Urso has one month to raise $10,000 to fund her latest project.
Urso's a self-described risk taker. She chiseled a 350-pound rock and scattered the pieces around Phoenix after a show at The Icehouse in 2008, and you may have also seen her work at eye lounge, Artlink's A.E. England Gallery or Modified Arts.
This year, she was selected to join the United States Artists -- an online community that helps creatives around the country develop new projects and raise money. Urso has until midnight on March 18 to fill the bank for "The Things
in Between," and she says that if she doesn't reach her $10,000 goal, her project can't be completed.
Urso says donations will go toward materials and production costs for 100 limited-edition books as well as an exhibition. She's also planning on thanking her supporters with work from the project. For $25 donations, she'll be giving prints of her own photographs, and the highest donors will receive their own "Things in Between" video, filmed and edited by the artist.
Anyone interested in making supporting her project can do so and track of her progress at the The Things in Between website.
