Electric Projected REBOOT - 10-01-11

We'd like to start by saying thank you! People from our amazing community and beyond came together to support this amazing project. Now that the Electric Projected ReBoot kickstarter campaign is fully funded we have shifted into high gear to get everything in order for Saturday. We have a few new animations for you and some special surprises. You may remember this from last time, but we wanted to remind you again:

Bring your lawn chair and your dancing shoes,
you will be glad you have both!

So we need your help with our latest project, Electric Projected . As some of you may already know the original massive outdoor projection event was scheduled for August 6th 2011. Unfortunately we got blindsided by a freak storm and we had to cancel the event. Since we were already set up and ready to go, we still had to pay for all the rented equiptment and we lost all the money we raised. (over $20,000)

However, instead of getting discouraged and giving up we have decided to try again, and the REBOOT event is scheduled for October 1st.

Here is where we need your help:
In oder to finace the minimum equipment rental and street permits we need for the Reboot we need to raise $16,500. We are using Kickstarter to rasie the money we need and as of Sept 16th we have raised $7,261. So we still need to raise $9,000 to make this event happen.

I know many of you do not live in Beacon, and may not be able to make it to the event on the 1st. However, I like to think of it this way, since I am sending you this message, I obviously think you are interested in what we do and you know that we work very hard to create and organize fun and interesting art based events for Beacon and beyond. Our events are typically free and the really fun ones are outdoors. We rarely ask for much and are content knowing that when we send out emails most of you read them, and very few of you ask to be removed from the mailing list.

So we are hoping that if you have been following our projects for the past 4 years you know we always put our all into the projects we do and Electric Projected is no exception. For this project we asked 24 world class animators to re-imagine each of the pieces on the Electric Windows building. The finsihed pieces are designed to be projected on the entire front of the EW building. Take a look at the line up projector test below. the EW building is 160' wide x 70' tall and the projections fill the whole thing.....


** payments will not be processed until our funding goal is met.

Please, give what you can, every little bit helps. $5, $10, $100
Please forward this email onto anyone you think would like this project or would be interested in supporting something awesome.

thanks in advance for your help

This Saturday! A glimpse into the ezerdian multiverse

Please Join us for our first official show of 2011. We have made some changes over hear at OPENSPACE and last month Cary Janks and Eric Miro of the animation studio General Idea have set up shop in the studio. They do amazing animation work and have lots of talented creative friends, so it only made sense for Cary to guest curate a show (or 2).

Please join us this Saturday for Cary's curatorial debut as he presents " a glimpse into the ezerdian multiverse" by Kingston based artist ezerd.

Patrick Winfield "Fragmented Yet Focused"

It's no secret Patrick Winfield is one our favorite artists to show here at OPEN SPACE, in fact this is the 4th time we have had the pleasure of putting his work on our walls. It would be an understatement to say Patrick has been "busy" over the past year. Starting with a move to Brooklyn, Patrick has spent the past 12 months showing his work all over the tri-state area, doing interviews, exploring the possibilities of the new "impossible project" film, expanding his amazing collage techniques, and releasing limited edition canvas prints with everyone's favorite hip retailer. So come on out this Saturday and see what Patrick has been up too.

On July 31st The streets of Beacon were alive with art, music and energy.
Electric Windows was truly an amazing event and everyone that experienced the day will likely never forget it.

All of the amazing artists who participated in the Electric Windows project have each contributed a piece to our newest exhibition "Electric Walls"

Please join us this 2nd Saturday for the 2nd Official Opening of this absolutely amazing gallery show.
