PopUp Research Station- 2014 Fundraising Campaign

"Art is Business"

Phantom Gallery Chicago and Phantom Galleries LA have come together with the intent to create a network of support for artists and arts organizations who are engaged in temporary public art installations in storefronts that engage community response. We envision the project as a portal for shared knowledge, a resource of best practices, ongoing professional development, and a place for moral support to enhance our collective impact.

The Pop-Up Research Station will be a place to glean information. We see the Pop-Up Research Station as the portal to documenting our legacy, which we hope will give emerging artists and arts organizers the necessary skills to advance their creative visions. We have over twenty years education to offer from our own research and development. We have also learned from artists who have carved out their own niches, built new communities from empty storefront, and developed monthly art walks.

The Pop-Up Research Station will host an national conversation formatted as an online summit, starting in 2014. The conference and recorded podcasts will be more candid, but will include facts and figures.  The talks will focus on real discussions about the problems we face as artists and arts organizers in temporary public spaces, the use of our intellectual property, and how it is used to cultivate urban renewal.

In order to start the Pop-Up Research Station, we need a minimum of $5,000, which will go towards materials, administrative fees, and travel costs. Anything that we raise over our minimum goal will go towards additional administrative fees as well as perk costs.

Please help us realize our dream to create the Pop-Up Research Station by donating today!

Thank you so much for your support.
