In support of Cascio’s exhibition Current Obsessions, the Kickstarter campaign supported:
- artist travel expenses
- artist’s accommodations
- exhibition documentation
- installation expense
Supporters who donated $50 or more received a ticket to the private VIP Reception to meet Christopher Cascio on Saturday, November 15.
Our goal was $1,500.
