Tiny Art Grant Award: Polar

August 20th, 2009 by Colin

The Pacific Ocean here in San Francisco is not known for sweltering temperatures; however, that does not mean we do not need ice. Surely, if there was no ice, one’s drink may get lonely with only the glass for company. At Balsa Man, ice is especially useful just in case a participant gets over excitable; you then may find yourself in dire need of ice to cool them down.

For these reasons and more, Balsa Man has approved it’s first vendor: Polar, the one and only location where you can buy precious ice at Balsa Man! All proceeds of ice will be donated to local charitiable organizations.

Polar will be no boring vendor, Veronica Fetzner and Simon Sutherland’s artistic vision using foam core for Polar is excellent and their detailed postcard encapsulates why the Black Pebble Arts Foundation has chosen to award them a tiny art grant of $15 so they can buy baggies. This is a large grant by the BPAF standards, but we feel it’s justified due to the importance of having ice available at Balsa Man.

    speaking for both simon and myself, we thank you. thank you for appreciating our artistic vision as well entrusting us to help provide a vital service. we are greatly honored. we hope to do the entire community proud.

    this is a glorious time for both of us. this is a time where we will get to realize an artistic dream. on a personal front, i am hoping that creating camp polar will afford me the opportunity to scream just once in this life, “no you fool! that was a load bearing safety pin!!!!!”

    again, thank you.
