RiverLink Kicks Off Warehouse Studios Revitalization Fundraiser with Kickstarter

RiverLink is in the process of giving the Warehouse Studios a facelift. Part of this project includes a mural painted by a local artist. This is being done for free. To bring the building back to its full glory, we also need new handrails for the Warehouse Studios (both into our offices and for the handicap access for the artist studios on the second floor).

These handrails will be a collaboration between a local Asheville artist and RiverLink as well as the Biltmore Iron & Metal Company who will be donating the metal.

RiverLink is starting a new KickStarter initiative to fund the project. The project is called artistic hands and the goal is raise $4000 by April 30, 2013.

Kickstarter is based on all-or-nothing funding. Starting March 1, people will be able to sign on and pledge money to help with the Artistic Hands projects. We have set a goal, and if for some reason that goal is not reached, RiverLink will not get any of the money pledged.

RiverLink is very excited about this project, and committed to ensuring artists of the River Arts District are able to make a living from their trade. The money raised in this project will make sure RiverLink is able to pay the artist who will create the handrails and help bring the building, and the River Arts District, back to life. 

Riverlink,  located in Asheville's River Arts District,  is a regional organization spearheading the economic and environmental revitalization of the French Broad River watershed as a destination where everyone can work, live and play .
