Egypt-bound artists launch Kickstarter

A group of seven artists, including several from Bend, are planning an adventure to Egypt for a creative project in the spring of 2014.

“What Rhymes with Egypt,” as the project is being called, consists of Bend locals Mosley Wotta, Kaycee Anseth, Kristina Cyr and Euijin and Nathan Gray, as well as artists VAJO, of Tunisia, and Moey Zakaria, of Jordan.

The group plans to travel to Cairo and Alexandria to “put down on paper” the creative community’s responses to the current cultural state of Egypt. Their experiences will culminate in a three-part art book.

A Kickstarter campaign to raise funds for the project launches today and runs through December.
