Plaza District to Crowd-fund New Public Art Piece

Join our Sponsored by YOU campaign to raise $5,000 through crowdsourcing for a new, commissioned public art sculpture in the Plaza District! The sculpture artist, or team of artists, selected by a committee, will debut their plans for the art piece at the 19th annual Plaza District Festival on September 30.

‘Sponsored by YOU’ donations are accepted online at plazadistrictfestival.com. By accepting individual online micro-donations, the Plaza District Association will recognize the community, name by name, as official sponsors of this annual event at the Plaza District Festival.

“Last year, $4,000 was raised to support Plaza Walls, a curated, rotating mural project that included 20 artists debuted 20 new murals covering 5200 square feet of outdoor wall space, in 2015, we accepted $2,000 worth of micro-donations for much needed Festival supplies like extension cords and tents,” said Cayla Lewis, Executive Director of the Plaza District Association. “This year our campaign focus is a new piece of sculpture art that will be installed in the Plaza District for our community and guests alike to enjoy.”
