Despite our determination to use recycled and found parts, we easily spend thousands on even small projects. We rely on donations and grants from generous people and organizations to pedal our artworks to life for the public.
Industrial arts seem to be gaining popularity too. A telling success story of the public’s enthusiasm for celebratory arts is seen in The Great Handcar Regatta. This festival’s debut in September 2008 captured a cheering crowd of some thousands, many reveling in costume along with the performers and racers. Longtime residents and journalists alike hailed the event as perhaps the most exciting in Santa Rosa’s history!
