Start Seeing Art is a community service. We gladly accept sponsorship and donations to keep this project going.
What people are saying:
“This is great work!” -Jack Becker, Forecast Public Art
“What a great idea! This is a wonderful resource for anyone who doesn’t want to miss the hidden gems of public art in the city.” -Elise Kyllo, local artist
“I have been looking at this sculpture and other art pieces around the Twin Cities for years without really seeing them. Thanks to Kevin Hendricks, I know a lot more about the art work around town.” -Teresa Boardman, St. Paul Real Estate Blog
“Hendricks does a great job mapping out the plethora of public art around the metro. Start Seeing Art is becoming the authoritative database.” -Aaron Landry, social media consultant
“Thank you for posting my work on StartSeeingArt.com. I took a look at the site and was very impressed. It’s a great idea.” -Ed Charbonneau, local artist
You can make an online donation via PayPal:
You can support local art in the Twin Cities area by sponsoring Start Seeing Art. We won’t pretend this is a lucrative advertising opportunity for anyone. As a local, niche site we can’t deliver the page views that would warrant advertising dollars (we get about 25 visits and 50 page views per day), which is why we call it a sponsorship.
While it may not be a great advertising opportunity, it is a good way to connect to a highly targeted audience and show your support for public art. You can keep this project going and help people find and appreciate art in their neighborhood. That’s worth supporting.
Sponsorship banners are 200 pixels wide by 100 pixels tall. We will only accept a static image file (GIF or JPG). No rotating graphics, animated GIFs, Flash files, etc. There will be no more than five sponsorship spots available each month. Only a single banner will be shown for each page viewed. In other words, your banner will appear on 20 percent of all page views across the site.
The current rate is $25 USD per banner per month. That’s cheap! Multiple-month sponsorships are encouraged.
