Only hours left: Swoon’s Kickstarter Campaign

I don’t have much to add to that video other than to say this: Both times I’ve worked on with Swoon, it’s been life-changing. You’ve only got a few hours left. Swoon has proven that she walks the walk, and she has some serious plans for Braddock, PA. If all goes well, this will take her art practice to new heights. If you can contribute to her Kickstarter campaign, please do so.

And yes, Swoon has met her initial goals, but there’s still a real need for more funds to get this project to be the best it can be.

Swoon’s print release for Braddock Tiles

Swoon

In her ongoing effort, since 2007, to revitalize the suburb of North Braddock, Pennsylvania, Swoon has recently launched a print shop Braddock Tiles. Through creating and selling prints of images donated by 50 artists, Swoon is trying┬áto raise funds for the construction of a new roof for the town’s community center made of 20,000 handmade, honeycomb-shaped, ceramic tiles. The prints are priced at a reasonable $45 and each at an edition size of 250. Definitely worth the purchase, in my opinion. You can have a look at the collection of prints here.

Swoon Print For Charity

Those familiar with Swoon may know about her work in Braddock, a suburb of Pittsburgh. Basically, she’s working to revitalize the area through art. It’s a great project headquartered here. Well anyway, Swoon released a print on Just Seeds recently to raise money for rebuilding a church that is being taking over by artists in Braddock. Alden is a great image (I’ve got two versions of it), and this looks really great. The print is only $400, which seems low for an edition of 55. Why not support a great cause and get a beautiful piece of artwork in the process? (Sorry if this all sounds a bit like an advert, but I really think that these things that Swoon does for charity are great)
