THE STORY:

(PLEASE NOTE IN YOUR DONATION COMMENT THAT THIS IS FOR THE “RAYGUN GOTHIC ROCKET INSTALLATION”).

Do you love gigantic public art? Do you love the imaginative designs of early science fiction fantasies (think: Flash Gordon). Did you leave your heart in San Francisco? Then we NEED YOUR HELP!

The Black Rock Arts foundation (BRAF) is currently working on placing a 40 foot tall aluminum rocket sculpture called the Raygun Gothic Rocketship on Pier 14 off of the Embarcadero near the Bay Bridge in San Francisco (just South of the Ferry Building).   This masterpiece was built by a group called Engineered Artworks for Burning Man 2009 (where it saw a massive pyrotechnic simulated launch). It has recently been approved by the city of San Francisco for a 400 day installation on Pier 14 starting this August. The San Francisco Port Authority has committed part of the funding for installation, but there is still more needed from external sources. That is where we come in.

Our goal is to raise at least $10,000 of the $45,000 needed to install this gigantic piece of art. This will be a public art piece that will grab imaginations and surely enter the public consciousness as an icon of San Francisco in the 21st century. Let's help make this a reality!

Why is the donation going to BRAF?
BRAF is a 501c3 which will remit the funds to the rocket installation project and allow donors to make this a charitable contribution. The rocket project itself is not a government designated charitable entity.
