BE OUR HERO - Save the Legacy of Aging Artists & Impact Future Generations.

A quote from one of our wonderful pilot project fellows -

"ART CART is an amazing program that will change the way we protect and honor the legacies of professional artists and change our understand of successful and productive aging. Through the many ART CART stakeholders including donors in the first ART CART RocketHub campaign the program has advanced from its pilot in New York City to a national program. I hope that you will all take the time to learn about the program, and make a contribution to the latest ART CART campaign on RocketHub."

Sincerely, Paul Nikolaidis
ART CART Fan and former Fellow

BE OUR HERO - Save the Legacy of Aging Artists & Impact Future Generations.

RocketHub Crowdfunding Project Milestone: 100% funding reached! (as of Tues, April 23)

We are so appreciative of the strong show of support for our artists and their work. The filming has begun, our project has been featured on the RocketHub blog, and we are all getting excited about the ART CART 2013 documentary and exhibitions.

We still have two weeks left in the fundraising campaign. Surpassing our goal will help this project to become even more of a success by enabling the promotion and launch of the 2 celebratory exhibitions in September. Please continue to follow our progress and support us as we continue to move forward! http://rkthb.co/22568

DC Fellow & RocketHub Project Leader, Catherine Starek -

"ART CART: Saving The Legacy" is a groundbreaking arts legacy project that helps older artists document a lifetime of creative work. As one of the ART CART fellows (one of 40 graduate students) and the Crowdfunding Project Leader for the second documentary film, I realize the intergenerational value and the interdisciplinary impact it is having on our future.

This is my 1st time leading a crowdfunding project. We are at 80% of our goal (~$3,700), with only 18 days left to raise the funds needed for this project! Please support us and help save our national legacy!

General information

The RCAC's recent study, Above Ground: Information on Artists III: Special Focus New York City Aging Artists, revealed that artists are in many respects a model for society, maintaining strong social networks and an astonishing resilience as they age. Yet 61% of professional visual artists age 62+ have made no preparation for their work after their death; 95% have not archived their work; 97% have no estate plan; 3 out of every 4 artists have no will and 1 in 5 have no documentation of their work at all. Vital works of art, and the creative histories that comprise an important component of American cultural heritage, are imperiled by the lack of a functional, sustainable model for documentation. While art students may ponder their first exhibition or sale, most graduate-level curriculum lacks instruction in long-term concerns such as the proper documentation of artwork. Art Cart will address these challenges by providing aging artists with direct, hands-on support and guidance to manage and preserve their life's work, and by providing students with an intergenerational, educational experience and mentorship in the documentation of artistic legacy. Over the course of an academic year, several teams of students, each working with a single visual artist, will document a substantial number of works - collecting both high-quality digital images as well as relevant historical, biographical, and artistic background information. Their work will be guided by standards and tools developed by the Research Center and the Joan Mitchell Foundation.
