Final Call To Support La Frontera Project

My fundraiser campaign for LA FRONTERA: Artists along the US Mexican Border on IndieGogo is soon coming to an end.

In 2 days, to be exact.

So far 70 funders from all over the world have contributed a collective amount of 6,640 $. I am very grateful to every single backer, no matter how big or small the contribution. This campaign will keep the funds even if the set goal is not met.

I will appreciate every additional support, big and small, because:

On November 19th I will travel to the border in the state of Tamaulipas to continue my work with your backing !! The more money I have, the further along the border I'll get. It's that simple. The goal is to cover the entire length of the 2000 miles, one artist at a time. 

With a grant from German Bild&Kunst foundation (that I was awarded with before I started this fundraising effort) and your contributions I can now continue the project, but every additional dollar would still help to complete it. On November 19th I will travel to Brownsville and Matamoros and then slowly make my way west. I will come home to New York for Christmas/New Year and continue my travels along the border in early January.

Please watch the short video (I am in it !!) and more images from my recent visits to Baja California and contribute if you like, or share the link with your networks soon, there are only 4 days left until the campaign ends:

Thank you for your support !!
