On the heels of the success of Beauford Delaney: Resonance of Form and Vibration of Color, we intend to take the exhibition to museums in the U.S. and Europe to further extend its remarkable impact. To encourage museums to host it, we're working with the Wells International Foundation (WIF) to create a video documentary that presents Beauford, the works displayed, and the accompanying educational and cultural programming. We'll use the hours of video footage and hundreds of photographs from the eight events that we hosted during the exhibition to create the documentary.
On April 25, 2016, WIF launched a 30-day, all-or-nothing Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign to raise money to cover the costs for the documentary. It ended on Tuesday, May 24 at 3 PM Eastern time.
Here are the final results:
$6,360 pledged of the original $5,000 goal (127% funded)
$1,360 pledged of the stretch goal of $1,250 (108% funded)
In other words, the campaign was a phenomenal success!
Kickstarter is expected to make the funds available within 14 days of the end of the campaign, but we've already begun work on the post-production phase of the documentary. If you'd like to keep abreast of developments, click HERE.
