Alex Kuno is in the process of creating "The Children's Crusade," three new simultaneous, site-specific art installations for the Lowertown Art Crawl (10/4, 10/5, 10/6) which will deepen and expand "The Miscreants of Tiny Town", his long-running series of apocalyptic fairy tales. With the cooperation and ingenuity of the Lowertown-based artist initiative Rage to Order, these shows are becoming progressively more elaborate. He's taking on this challenge by diving into new techniques and methods to bring his stories to life in unique and exciting ways, and is also turning to you to insure that the project lives up to its expectations. Your support will allow him to invest in the necessary tools, art supplies, lighting, lumber, PR materials, staff, and a slew of other details.

This is an ambitious project! Anticipation is already building among the fans and collectors of the series from around the country so these shows have the potential to bring even more national attention to the Lowertown art community. Your support will also guarantee Alex's ability to keep his production costs down and his work affordable for years to come. And for those of you who've been fans of the "Tiny Town" series but felt like you couldn't afford it, this fundraising campaign includes incentives that will easily give you the chance, and are designed to make this new body of work accessible to first-time and long-time "Tiny Town" collectors alike.

Thank you to all of you who've supported and encouraged the development of this series. The connections and friendships that it has helped create over the years has been truly humbling, and your continued investment will cement the foundation for this crazy new stage of evolution in the "Miscreants of Tiny Town" mythology.

As the show is being built, I'll be carving the initials of all my supporters into the landscapes of the Tilsner Installation. Since I'll be taking it down the day after the Art Crawl ends, I'll cut out your initials from the rocks, mount them on a wood base and send it out you will all the other stuff you'll get. A cool, weird little artifact representing all the crazy work that's going into the shows!
