Nearly one year after breaking records on Kickstarter, Gary Greff and his Enchanted Highway are nearing an addition to the collection of metal sculptures.
Greff was assisted by Jackson Ridl (then an intern with Emerging Prairie of Fargo) who helped get the crowdfunding campaign off the ground. Kickstarter is just one company that hosts crowdfunding campaigns, with donors which are called Backers getting something in return for the money.
After accumulating 411 backers, the most in the history of North Dakota campaigns with Kickstarter, the campaign surpassed their initial goal of $15,000 (£11,350.95). The total amount raised last July and August was $20,793 (£15,734.69), which was the second largest amount raised by a North Dakota campaign at the time.
When the campaign began on July 8, 2015, Greff posted a rough sketch of what was to be the next sculpture, a 70-foot by 70-foot spider web. But plans have changed.
