In 2010 Seattle street artists No Touching Ground, NKO and photographer Dan Hawkins, collectively known as the New Mystics, created a a 9,000-square-foot art installation called The Tombs in a former factory south of downtown Seattle. By design the project was hidden from the public in a building that the three artists entered illegally, though it it was decently documented by local writers and photographers.

The New Mystics now want to work together with the King County arts organization 4culture to recreate their installation in a way that is accessible and open to the public. They're looking for $2,000 to install this piece properly and have started a Kickstarter campaign towards that goal. As with all Kickstarter initiatives, any well meaning soul is welcome to go online and give any amount of money for a project that inspires them. The public installation is scheduled to open on April 4th, 2011 at Gallery 4Culture in downtown Seattle, and it will happen on time with our help. More about the Tombs project here.
