My name is Kay Hilde.
My dream project is to repurpose a grain bin into a art studio and sanctuary. I am an artist and I also teach classes and seminars encouraging people of all backgrounds and ages to rediscover their creative selves and think outside the box. What better place to do that then in a round grain bin on my family farm in Minnesota?
On our farm, just miles outside the city of Moorhead, MN, are several empty grain bins just waiting for a renewed purpose! I'm happy to say I have the vision, the drive, most of the resources and all the determination necessary to make Binny's Art Studio & Sanctuary a reality.
If I were awarded the $25,000 grand prize the money would go directly to construction materials and labor. I have been working with an architect and I'm happy to say the finished studio is estimated to cost less than $40,000 as the foundation, electricity, etc. are already existent. I have raised and saved approximately $15,000 for this project so far so the additional $25,000 would be a serendipitious and generous final piece to the puzzle!
I want to thank you for your consideration of my dream project and thank you for providing this opportunity - what a wonderful way to encourage indepedent ingenuity!
All the best and Cheers!
PS. I do have a favorite JD drink. It's Jack and Water with a Lemon (for femininity). :)
