Bliss Dance, the 40-foot-tall sculpture of nude woman built to dance at Burning Man in 2010, became a beloved, iconic local art installation when it was placed on Treasure Island later that year. What was meant to be a temporary placement has been repeatedly extended by the Treasure Island Development Authority and artist Marco Cochrane's crew.
But she was never meant to dance in these foggy elements for such a long song. So if she's going to remain there for the extra year that TIDA has authorized, she's going to need some help in the form for a rust-proof protective coating and an overhaul of her lighting system.
And that's where we all come in -- at least those of us who want to see her continue dancing there, framed against the San Francisco waterfront and skyline. Cochrane and his crew have started a Kickstarter campaign to raise the $16,000 they need by Jan. 10.
At this point, they're more than halfway to the goal, so take some of that extra cash that grandma sent you for the holidays and apply it to a worthy cause: supporting local art and artists, and ensuring this place remains a hub of creativity. Or if that's not good enough, do it for nude dancing women everywhere.
