Brighten up Seattles Instersections

$4,375 of $5,000 goal

Raised by 83 people in 1 month

Hello, I'm a West Seattle based artist by the name of Desmond Hansen. I would like to add some color to our boring gray intersections. I'm raising money for supplies to paint small fine art murals on the traffic boxes around West Seattle. I'm in need of brushes, Paint, Tape, Drop Cloths, Respirator filters, Gloves, Clear coat, and much more. Most of these boxes are filthy and covered in ugly blotches of gray paint the city has used to cover graffiti over the years. After researching and coordinating I found that as a professional artist, donating my time and skills is a great way for me to give back to the community. Unfortunately the city does not have a dedicated budget for the project so I'm left with the choice of funding the project on my own at first. I went out and started on a few of them already and really appreciate the support people have been giving me. Influential people within the community stated that I should probably start a go fund me so they can help contribute so thats what this is. We reached our first goal of 2,000 which covers some of the boxes in West Seattle so I raised our goal to 4000 which will enable me to go beyond West Seattle with this project. Thank you in advance to anyone who contributes and helps make our intersections a more fun and interesting place to be. I'd really like to get around to doing all of them and you are helping to make that possible. Thank you.

Seeing how we reached our 2k goal in 1 day I have decided to raise our goal to 4k. This will insure that a few traffic boxes get painted outside of west Seattle as well. Thank you for contributing!
