Art and adventure need your help, and well, your money. If you don’t have money, send this along to some people who do, and beckon them to hand it over.
Photographer friend Tod Seelie, perhaps the most infamous and known photographer of art in Brooklyn, really wants to make this happen. The Ohio River Project, from the such-and-such that did Swoon’s swimming cities project (which I can’t believe some people haven’t heard of, it was incredible.) and maybe the Boatel in Far Rockaway, and some other things….
THEY NEED MONEY. IT’S FOR AN AWESOME ART PROJECT THAT WILL SPAWN GREAT TIMES & PHOTOS.

ABOUT THIS PROJECT
Every year we build sturdy oceangoing boats made of trash, pick a destination and just do it. Trips in the past have included 750 miles of the Mississippi River, 300 miles of the Hudson, traversing the Adriatic Sea from Slovenia to Venice, and a stint on the Ganges.
This year we’ve selected the largest and most populated river in America, the Ohio River, for the summer’s trek. We built an amazing boat out of old books and pianos, reclaimed lumber, and a two-story pedal-powered Ferris Wheel. We are bringing a production of Bigfoot: the Musical, free to audiences on the river.
This is a possibility engine, only made possible by co-conspirators such as you. Watch the video for details.
