Dear friends and patrons ~
I have selected to reach out to you with this fundraising campaign for my current project. Many of you know me as a painter and as an assemblage sculptor. Currently, I am half way through my next creative adventure of constructing elaborate hats/head pieces. The final collection will be styled and photographed (by the best in Denver) and then will be published in Beauty Underground Magazine and also featured during Denver Fashion Week In April. I am loving this process and cannot wait to share it all with you. I have 12 pieces finished with a goal of 22 - 25 pieces. (I'd like to show them all to you now, but that would be too much of a spoiler). :)
I selected to fundraise as this project has become very costly compared to the works that I complete as a painter. I am collecting the most exciting items for constructing these hats from every corner of the world and suddenly it seems to require more funding than I had imagined when I started it on my own.
I will say that these hats might only be worn by the most bold and confident woman or man, but they are also works of art. Each hat is built on a sculptural structure and tells a story. So they will serve as a conversation piece whether upon your head or displayed in your home. I am really looking forward to having this series become a huge part of my legacy as a visual artist.
I thank you for your support (all of you - over all of these years). And I hope that I can continue to excite or inspire you in the future. ... The donation amount of your choice can be made right here through PayPal. I'm shooting for $2500 but I'd love to pull in twice that much to really take things totally next level! Thank you so much again ... And support the arts!!
All my best, Paul Moschell.
