Crowd-Funded Art Projects
USA Projects is a Kickstarter-Style Site for Artists

By: Michael Hines (Superstar) Apr 20, 11

If you love Kickstarter but wish it was a little more artistic, then you have got to check out USA Projects. USA Projects is a new website that works much the same way as Kickstarter, except it raises money for works of art.

The artistic cousin of Kickstarter has a design similar to Kickstarter in that there are detailed project summaries and earnings goals posted. Donators also receive a cool souvenir if the project is funded to completion. USA Projects differs from Kickstarter in that it only admits accomplished artists who have won either national or regional awards. The second major difference is that USA Projects matches crowdsourced donations and underwrites certain projects. If you want to support the arts from the comfort of your own home, then you’re definitely going to want to check out USA Projects.
