Group launches art crowdfunding site

Posted: Updated:

Northeast Iowa RC&D is launching a new website to crowdfund the arts. will soon begin accepting donations for three projects.

“We are extremely excited to launch this new crowd funding website,” Executive Director Lora Friest said. “As far as we know, this is the first crowd funding website for multiple art projects that anyone in Iowa has ever launched, but funding to advance the arts in our small communities is so limited that we feel this is an important initiative.”

Projects slated for contributions include The Puppet Project, Nisse on the Trail, and the Creativity Center: Artisan Cafe and Courtyard. The Puppet Project will construct puppets for parades. The Nisse Project will place sculptures along Trout Run Trail in Decorah. The Creativity Project plans to bring a culinary program to Guttenberg.
