Artists Casey Sheppard (a jeweler) and Evan Reinheimer (a photographer) join Connie to talk about their experiences using Kickstarter.com to fund their art projects.
Casey's project raised funds to enable her to participate in the Cherry Creek Art Festival this summer and Evan is currently fundraising to finance a trip to Australia.
Kickstarter is a funding platform for creative projects. Everything from films, games, and music to art, design, and technology. Kickstarter is full of ambitious, innovative, and imaginative projects that are brought to life through the direct support of others.
Since its launch on April 28, 2009, over $350 million has been pledged by more than 2.5 million people, funding more than 30,000 creative projects.
