Mark Moonbeam is creating free Magical Art Parties for all!

patrons

$126
per month

Do you ever feel like you are existentially constrained by extrinsic prescriptions? Do you long to act from the inside out, rather than the outside in? THERE IS A WAY! You can trust yourself (you have tasted it before).

Free Magical Art Parties are one way to taste this inherent freedom. Like gingerbread houses, Magical Art Parties are fantastical environments where everything can be EATEN! Or, at least, used to make new magical art pieces like alien flowers and plants, galaxies of rhinestones and glass, clownish clothes, and other glowing and glittering objects.

Your crucial support of Magical Art Parties keeps them FREE for all. It is important they are free, because they are a gift. Magical Art Parties are not a business or a product. They are a chance for whoever walks by and has the guts to stop and ask to experience freedom. As a participant, you are surrounded by all the magical art supplies you could ever imagine, and you get to do whatever you want with them. The only rule is: Don't think too much about it!

Each pop-up Magical Art Party requires many hours of searching for materials, much packing and transportation, and around $500 of supplies. I gladly do the work and pay the costs -- it is the only thing I want to do and the only way I want to spend my money. But your support helps. It helps more Magical Art Parties occur by defraying costs. It helps my morale in the times when the work is more a struggle and less a joy -- the natural ebb and flow of creative work. Most importantly, it helps the tender, curious hearts of those just like you, who want to have fun, but are afraid sometimes; who are confused by a gift offered with no strings attached, because they are used to life as economic exchange; who long for their own childlike wonder, but are constrained by internalized expectations that say "be this way." Your participation here helps others taste the wide open space of possibility they, and you, already possess. We don't have to be any way anybody says. We do not have to be afraid of who we are. We can be free.
