     My name is Mona Gazala. I'm a sculptor, a photographer, a painter, an organizer, a neighborhood activist, and an advocate for social equity. I run the Second Sight Project in Columbus, Ohio. What motivates me to get up every morning is passion. Passion to create, passion to build, passion bring attention to issues that matter. But passion won't fix a leaky tub, nor replace a busted window, nor pay an electric bill. That's where you, my Patreon friends, come in.
     With your support, I can continue to "fight the good fight" for social justice and keep creating really relevant art that speaks to people and reaches people in ways that words cannot. At the same time, I have a wealth of behind-the-scenes stories of my life here in Franklinton, and stories of what motivates me to create, that I think will hold a lot of value for you; and I'm excited to share them with you in exclusive Patreon updates!

This is your basic pledge of support, for which I humbly thank you! You understand the importance of artistic patronage, particularly in a non-commercial practice such as mine, and believe in what I do enough to back it. Watch out - your awesomeness is showing!

You not only back my work, but want the inside scoop!  At this level of patronage, you will have access to content not available through any other social media platforms. At least once a month (and probably more!) you'll get an exclusive look at what's happening on the block, what I'm currently working on, or some insight into anything from what motivated the creation of a certain sculpture to what's got me hot under the collar lately in local politics!

Seriously, you rule! Not only do you get the benefits of the previous-level memberships, but you will receive access to one exclusive video per month. You may not be a resident artist here at Second Sight Project, but now you'll get to take a look at what it's like to live here! You already pay monthly access fees for Hulu and Netflix, now get exclusive access  to "reality TV"  right here in Franklinton, Columbus, Ohio!

Dude! You are the master patron! Receive all the content available to the other levels, plus after each 12-month period OWN A PIECE OF THE ARTIST'S WORK (to be privately negotiated; and yes, you will have a wide range of choices) OR have your own private group or couple's hors de veurs / artist's talk on the premises of the Second Sight Project.
Goals
$32 of $500 per month
At $500 per month in patronage, I can spend much less time worrying about my "day job" and more time working on what brought me to Columbus to begin with, which is using my artistic voice to communicate on important issues. That calls for a celebration!  As soon as we hit this goal, art-film screening at my place, with all of my Patreon patrons invited!
