About Liz LaManche

Creating Public Art and Street Art: You may know me as the creator of Connected By Sea, or the Stairs of Fabulousness, or various other public works around the Boston (and DC) area.

If you know my work, you know it's a mixture of mischievous fun and positive social agenda, usually created with an aim of getting people to have a moment, recognize each other, get along, and realize we're all in this together. Using either fun and color or beauty and magic to evolve us to the next level and get us to actually love each other, which we will need to be sustainable as a species in the years ahead. 

I'm asking for assistance to do more art in public places, both large and small, licit and guerilla. A run-down of some of my public work and ideas are here on my website.

I've been lucky enough to do a bunch more public art recently with permission, and with paid contracts. Supporters and partners have included Oxfam America, Google, City of Boston, City of Lowell, City of Salem, City of Medford, City of Somerville, the Somerville Arts Council, and Celebrity Series of Boston. Except for corporate commissions, most of my work doesn't make a living wage by itself... I put a LOT of thought and design time into each project, and a lot of physical and mental work into making good finished art, even if volunteers come out to help me with its creation. Often in working with cities and official entities, my time spent in the negotiation and planning phase alone eats most of what I get paid for the project. I am an LLC  and carry my own Public Art insurance. I'm also hoping to build the freedom to do more self-directed, under-the-radar, DIY street art that makes a difference, enlivens the city, and doesn't have to pass thru official channels :)

With your help we can create bigger projects, bringing in collaborators, and have more positive impact on the world. As a Patron you can have inside knowledge of what's in the planning stages, and influence on what we do.

Want to make more of a difference and spread more joy and good ideas in our culture? For the price of just one cup of coffee each month, I can be your personal voice, influencer of culture, your Coyote of urban mischief, and through me you can create beautiful things in the world. We can do this together. 

I've decided to make this monthly instead of by Thing, because Things can be of all sizes... Some of the big ones, like Connected By Sea, were months and months in the making. Others, like the Pokemon Go pranking of Cambridge and Somerville, were the work of an afternoon.

A monthly stipend will give me more time to concentrate on doing this work. Being accountable to YOU will also make sure that I make more small interventions on a regular basis. I'll also probably circulate other small art, like artistic digital representations of things I've done, short videos, artistic prints, etc. Backers will be able to hear the inside scoop about projects, come and help out, and possibly bail me out of jail (only partly kidding.)

(Other work that may happen along the way: writing articles about culture and street art, participating in socially conscious political action, making and distributing smaller pieces of art.)
