The Henry Miller Library in Big Sur is building a new stage for their outdoor amphitheater, and they're asking for your help.
They are trying to raise $6,250 to complete construction. The new stage is planned to be unveiled during the sold-out April 14 Animal Collective concert.
They have started a pledge drive at Kickstarter.com. You can view the page here. Full press release after the jump.
The Henry Miller Library is building a new stage for our outdoor amphitheater here in lovely Big Sur, California!
Situated within a redwood canyon, the stage will serve as a functional and sustainable structure, as well as a beautiful artistic statement integrated into its natural surroundings.
The stage will complement our dizzying array of events across 2011, which will include Animal Collective, our Vinyl in the Woods record fair, a tribute to Allen Ginsberg, Chris Robinson of the Black Crowes, S. Cary of Bon Iver, Bill Callahan (aka Smog) and of course, the world-famous "Big" Big Sur Fashion Show.
And that's just through the end of May - more amazing events are announced weekly!!
Throw in our annual short film screening series, children’s art shows, book readings, writing workshops, and open mics, and you can see why we're so excited.
With the new stage (that's the old one above) we hope to continue to put on amazing events...forever!
And with your help, you can be a part of it.
Your kind donation will be used to offset the construction costs and also help pay for ongoing maintenance, staging area supplies, and production-related expenses.
And we're a 501(c)3 organization, so your donation is tax-deductible.
Local builders have already begun construction. We'll unveil the new stage for the first event of our 2011 summer concert series: an intimate evening with Animal Collective on April 14th!!
