  3. Jim Power, aka The Mosaic Man, Launches a Rebuild “The Legendary Mosaic Trail” Campaign on Crowdfunding Site, Indiegogo

NEW YORK, April 29th, 2013 — Renowned New York City artist Jim Power, aka The Mosaic Man, today launched a fundraising campaign to rebuild his famous Mosaic Trail on Indiegogo, a leading international crowdfunding platform and community.
About the campaign:

For over 25 years, Jim Power, aka The Mosaic Man, has created one of the largest and longest lasting public arts projects with his Legendary Mosaic Trail. The trail of whimsical mosaic designs on lamp poles, planters, sidewalks and storefronts throughout New York City are some of the most recognizable and universally acclaimed works by a local artist. The various pieces are often dedicated to an historical event, person, or landmark, i.e. 9/11 or the former Fillmore East, or simply act as sign-posts and markers. The works are, for the most part, created using recycled materials, built to last, unique to the city, and add a great deal to the quality of life in the neighborhood. In 1988, Jim was authorized by the DOT to build up to 80 light poles. In 2004, he was inducted into the City Lore Peoples Hall of Fame and received an official proclamation from Mayor Bloomberg recognizing him for his selfless contribution to the city. Over the years, Jim’s work has been featured in countless television programs, newspapers, books and magazines worldwide.
All that, and Jim has never received any significant funding for his project from the city or outside groups. And, unfortunately, due to vandalism and destruction, only about a quarter of the lamp posts that make up the original trail are still fully intact.
So, he turns to you…
Now, you can help support the rebuilding of The Legendary Mosaic Trail!

Proceeds from the campaign will go toward supporting all facets of the rebuilding of the trail.
Not only will contributors help support the rebuilding of a part of New York City history, but they will also receive exciting and unique perks related to the trail itself, from stickers or T-shirts featuring Power’s designs, to one-of-a-kind original pieces of art or “artwear,” to opportunities to have your image or brand included on a pole for all to see!
The campaign is the culmination of several years of work by Power and his cohorts to build up visibility about his work on the trail and its impact on the city. The trail as a whole tells the story of an ever-changing neighborhood, what came before, what’s here now, and perhaps what will be in the future.
Power has often said that he is not out for fame. He feels he has a “responsibility to the people who love this work.” He makes his art “for the community that he loves and that loves him so dearly in return.” He is thankful for the continued support from the public throughout the years, and this campaign is the latest way for people to bea part of something big and help Jim see his vision through.
"We’ve got over 50,000 people on Twitter, Facebook, and Tumblr. If everyone gave just a few bucks, we could do this and the world wouldn’t know what him ‘em!” says Power.
The campaign lasts through Friday, May 24th, 11:59PM PT.

  7. NEW YORK, Nov. 29, 2012 — Famed artist Jim Power, aka The Mosaic Man, selected as a “Featured Maker” at the first ever Etsy Holiday Popup Shop running from November 29 — December 8 in New York City. Located at 131 Greene Street in SoHo, the shop will feature a broad selection of products from across the Etsy marketplace, as well as hosting events and music each day. Additionally, for each of the 10 days, the shop will host a different Maker in its front window. This will give New Yorkers a glimpse into each artist’s creative process.

    Jim, who operates a shop on Etsy featuring his one-of-a-kind line of mosaic “artwear” jumped at the opportunity.

    "This is big time," Power said, himself quite amazed at the turnout, and the fact that he was able to put together the 4’ x 6’ piece in just a matter of days. "My hands will be cut up after this one! That’s a lot of glass," he added.

    Jim’s latest masterpiece is a tribute to the city he calls home. “It’s a Mosaic Trail leading to The Big Apple!”

    In addition to being chosen to build an original work of art, Jim had several of his mosaic belt buckles hand-picked by the Etsy Holiday Shop curators to be sold at the store.

    Jim, along with his long-time collaborator, Lorraine Connelly, will be at the store on Friday, November 30, to put the finishing touches on his “Big Apple” mosaic. Feel free to stop by then or any time during the shop’s run to see Jim’s work, as well as hundreds of items from other Etsy Makers. Find unique gifts for the holidays and support independent artists!

    The Etsy Holiday Shop

    131 Greene Street, SoHo

    New York, NY 10012

    The store dates and hours of operation are:

    Dates: November 29 – December 8

    Times: 10am - 10pm daily

    About the Etsy Holiday Shop:

    • This year to celebrate Etsy is hosting its first brick-and-mortar holiday shop. From November 29 - December 8, in New York City’s Soho district, the store will not only help shoppers find special, high-quality gifts for their loved ones but share the stories of the talented Etsy sellers. 

    • The shop is a celebration of the spirit of Etsy - handmade & vintage, craftsmanship, one-of-a-kind*, personal, quality

    • The products in the store are unique presents - as the Etsy holiday ads say, “give the gifts that get them”.

    • Items have been bought at full price by Etsy and will be resold to the public at no additional cost, meaning this is a great way to support independent artists.

    • Gift Curators are individuals with distinctive style who are showing you how Etsy has items that fit their personality.

    • Programming is a broad look at what the Etsy community is all about - fun, sharing, inspiration, curiosity, creativity, imagination, skill

    • Featured sellers were chosen for their beautiful work and their personal story of being an Etsy seller. They are in the store to help customers connect with the individuals behind the products, and to see the level of craft that goes into each product.

    • Etsy “gift guides” helpers are there to connect you directly with the thousands of sellers and products we didn’t have space to put in the store. The shop is a selection to help customers understand the breadth of Etsy but it doesn’t explore the depth. For every leather bag in the shop, there are dozens more online. Our helpers can show you what else is available, help you find something great for the person who is hard to buy for, and just to explore and learn more about Etsy.com.
