Kickstart the Salmon on the Eel River project

[By Michael Guerriero]

Back in November 2010 I led a workshop at Cuddeback School with 13 students to create a set of stencils based on their salmon drawings.  This exercise matured into a studio project that I have been working on for the best part of this year with plans to culminate in April of 2012 with a show at the HSU First Street Gallery in Eureka.

The Project has a name, Celebrating the 2010 Salmon On The Eel River, A Collaborative Project by our Watershed’s Youth.  I have since repeated the exercise with a larger group of 30 students and another group of 3 to fill my studio with nearly 50 images of fish.  My goal is to collect as many as 300 images by presenting the workshop to kids throughout the watershed.

In order to make it all happen I could use some help in the form pledges on my newly launched Kickstarter Project.  You can find all the details about the project, a video presentation, premiums offered and how this form of fundraising works here.  I will have until September 30 to raise the project’s minimum  budget of $5500.  Forwarding this note along to friends that may be interested would also be helpful.

Please, do not feel obligated by this request.  Any form of support and encouragement is appreciated.

With best regards,
