Big projects often happen with many people working tirelessly behind the scenes. Hours of rehearsals, set creations and directing go into a theatre production, but we often only see the final product. It's the same with coordinating an event or making a movie.
What if you could be a part of something great here in Rochester without lifting a hand... or should we say, a brush?
By now you've probably guessed that we're talking about WallTherapy!
WallTherapy has transformed more than just walls, they've transformed buildings and neighborhoods too.
"2500 cans of spray paint and 300 gallons of paint later, over 60 of the most talented and recognized artists from the region, the nation, and the world have shared their talents to create over 100 murals throughout the city of Rochester since this “Visual Intervention” project began in 2011" (via. WallTherapy website).
Even if you can only give a few dollars - IT HELPS! The below is from the indiegogo page:
What your donation means directly to the cause:
For every $15 you donate, we can provide an artist with about 3 cans of spray paint.
For every $25 you donate the money goes for 4-5 cans of spray paint or a gallon bucket of primer
For every $50 that means we can purchase paint brushes, rollers, buckets and cover other supply expenses.
Donations of $150 or more helps the team supply the artist with food and water as they paint their murals.
Donations of $500 or more helps us rent a mechanical lift for the week, and our artists don’t have to stand precariously on a ladder to paint their work.
Should you donate $1000, that money goes directly to plane tickets and any sort of car rental needed for the artists
If you donate $5000, you are not just solidifying WALLTHERAPY this year and becoming a producer of this event, but you will be instrumental in helping us start focusing on the humanitarian endeavor and sister initiative known as IMPACT!
Not everyone can donate $150 or more... but even a dollar makes a difference.
Let's do this!
