My First KickStarter: Follow-up

Posted by: Amiris J. Brown on: May 11, 2012


DO NOT RAPE, is a mural by Amiris J. Brown (me) and is under a limited Creative Commons license, in that it cannot be used for commercial purposes.


This is the second mural I have done in one of the Free Expression Tunnels at Appalachian State University (ASU). It is a part of an ongoing art series that addresses the rape culture on the campus of ASU. While my KickStarter was not successful, in that I did not received enough pledges to reach my minimum goal and therefore received none of the money at all, I did however previously receive $50 from my WePay campaign effort. Later I obtained donated buckets of paint from an anonymous faculty member. The reason for their anonymity is not exactly due to humility, but out of fearfulness due to what has recently transpired with fellow ASU faculty member, Jammie Price. With the little bit I was able to gather to support my efforts, I created the mural just in time during the weekend before finals — overnight Sunday, into Monday morning. As of today final exams for this semester are finally over for everyone, but the ever increasing and intertwining controversies stemming from ASU’s administrative failures continue to mount.

Relevant art. U rock it.

Thanks. It’s a labor of love, since such “relevant art” is often at the root cause of what continues to get me into trouble. What can I say, I’m addicted to my passions.
