Venetian Residency / June 2017

$6,143 of $6,000 goal

Raised by 53 people in 26 months
I have the honor of being invited to participate in the pilot program of an amazing 17-day Residency and Exhibition in Venice, Italia.  The theme will be "West meets East/ East meets West" and is centered on creating work beside other artists of different disciplines at the Arsenale Docks , then followed by an exhibition paralleling the 57th Venice Biennale . I am trying to raise the funds required to participate which include studio space, lodging, air-fare, materials, shipping and living expenses while there. 
As a mosaic artist this is a dream for me and an opportunity I very much want to take advantage of. Can you imagine getting to go to the studio every day to create mosaics in this magical city for two weeks!
My excitement at being able to participate in this residency would only be matched by my gratitude towards all who can contribute, no matter how small or large, or even moral support towards making this a possibility. $3000+ donation owns one of these  works of mine, or one of the Venetian works created if not sold...,




$500 + a signed poster of work of your choice,  $200+ 12-set of postcards of my work,  $100+ 6 postcards, under $100 a postcard and ❤!
Warmest of regards and thank you!
Michael
