Yup, lot's of major institutions are now also using kickstarter to raise funds for selective projects.
The Rock Hall recently acquired an old sign advertising the Dairy Farm that became the site of Woodstock.
"An anonymous donor has agreed to help fund half of the $24,000 acquisition costs by contributing $12,000 toward the project. This donation came with the condition that other music fans provide the remaining amount through this on-line campaign. We need your support to meet this goal. It will be exhibited at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum this August to commemorate Woodstock’s 42nd anniversary."
Check out the details and support if you can on kickstarter
"This project will only be funded if at least $12,000 is pledged by Monday Aug 15, 12:00am EDT."
