In 2007, Dodge grantee ARTWORKS launched “Art All Night,” which is a twenty-four hour visual and performing arts festival in Trenton. Several Dodge staff have attended and raved about the festival (see Michele Russo’s 2011 review here and Michelle Knapik’s 2010 experience here). We look forward to attending again this June.
Through Kickstarter, ARTWORKS is hoping to bring back their Iron Pour for the 2012 Art All Night event. With 13 days left to fund it, they are 62% of the way to their $4,000 goal. Want to help them cross the finish line? Read more about the campaign below, and visit their Kickstarter page for a video of their 2010 iron pour and to pledge your support.
“The Art All Night-Trenton 2012 Iron Pour once again reunites the forces of Art All Night – Trenton with the AbOmInOg Intl. Arts Collective, who first worked with Art All Night in 2010. That year, the crew from AbOmInOg Intl. amazed spectators by forging steel live throughout the night, as one-story-high orange flames enveloped Trenton’s urban backdrop. This year’s Art All Night-Trenton festival marks the second historic collaboration between these two dynamic art forces as they once again bring the mesmerizing art of a live iron pour to inner-city Trenton.
Your donation to this Kickstarter campaign will ensure AbOmInOg Intl. can once again thrill onlookers with their unique craft at Art All Night-Trenton 2012. Those who pledge, will walk away with an incredible, newly-forged and fresh-from-the-flames commemorative medallion that will actually be created at Art All Night – Trenton as you, and thousands of onlookers, watch it all happen right before your eyes.”
