Joe Mangrum is creating Sand Paintings

The Patreon platform acts as a virtual tip-bucket. It allows fans of my work to make a monthly contribution while getting exclusive content not available on social media.

I will post a combination of images and/or video of each new sand painting I make throughout the month. If you pledge $1 or more you will be charged that amount for each painting I produce, which could be as many as 20 in any given month. You may also set a cap on your donation for any amount to make your monthly contribution fit your overall budget. Your pledge is very important to me and will allow my work to grow in new directions and expanded mediums.

To date I have made over 1000 ephemeral sand paintings as public art in NYC solely supported by people like you. I feel it's important to share the experience of art and love what I do, making people smile in the process. People from the world over connecting around an artwork, before it is swept away at the end of each day.

Because of their ephemeral nature, they are seen by a limited amount of people in person. On social media channels, I'm connected to the world with over 50,000 followers. If you have been following my work for awhile you also see that wind can blow away the work, which in turn eliminates my ability to make a living for that particular day.

If you have been following my work for awhile you can see that each day is different. Every sand painting is unique and I design them without a previous pattern in mind. On the spot. Sometimes the wind sweeps them away. If everyone chips in a little, it goes a long way in allowing me to expand the work beyond the street and to continue to share it with you.



I have an ongoing photo archive that I post for everyone on social media for free. I use my iPhone and instagram for the typical square format pics you see. On Patreon, I will post special subscriber content, including videos, aerial pics taken with my go pro  and other sneak peeks into my process that will be exclusive to Patreon for a period of time.

Your support for these creations will allow for an expansion in my art to take place. While I have so much fun making these ephemeral paintings, I have ways that I would like to make these designs a part of the world we live for years to come.

Here are a list of goals you will be supporting:

  1. Making canvas works in the studio. The hours i spend in studio producing are not paid until I actually sell the finished work which could take months.
  2. Make sand on wood panel in the studio.
  3. Finish three different book projects (enormous amount of editing writing and designing involved.
  4. Design and create my designs as permanent flooring as Terrazzo designs as I did for the corner of 22nd and Mission in San Francisco. This involves auto CAD drawings, hiring water jet companies to cut designs as well as installation costs to execute.
  5. Similarly use auto CAD to create stained glass projects.
  6. Expand my wood panel works into a 3d realm by printing and/or carving the designs as sculptural objects.
  7. Hire assistants to help in these processes. 
  8. Keep and maintain a full-time studio while continuing my ephemeral works outdoors on a less frequent basis.
  9. Seeking opportunities to tour and travel to share my work worldwide at indoor spaces available to see without threats of wind or rain. 
  10. Invest in other equipment and processes to push the envelope and provide affordable collectables to those who would like to purchase my work.

Stretcher bars, canvas, plywood, acrylic medium, colored sand, brushes, you name it these materials add up fast. With $500/mo as an estimate I want to increase my production.
