Jersey Collective launches Sticker Club on Kickstarter

Jersey Collective launches Sticker Club on Kickstarter

Jersey Collective launches Sticker Club, a pop-up art project that features stickers by New Jersey artists in a traveling vending machine, on Kickstarter.

Jersey Collective, an Instagram account with over 32,000 followers, is launching a new initiative that will bring affordable art to surprising places, utilizing a vending machine that will be filled with stickers designed by New Jersey artists. Once it is up and running, the machine will be available for businesses to host at their locations for limited pop-ups. 

Jersey Collective is best known as an Instagram account that features weekly takeovers with different New Jerseyans, who mostly share their photographs taken around the state. The project was created by Kerri Sullivan, editor of the anthology New Jersey Fan Club: Artists and Writers Celebrate the Garden State, which was published by Rutgers University Press in June.

In addition to the takeovers and the book, over the years Sullivan has hosted meetups and curated photography shows that have appeared at two Rutgers University libraries, Cowerks in Asbury Park, and most recently at the Carteret Performing Arts and Events Center. 

“I imagined Jersey Collective Sticker Club as a way to accomplish all of these things at once: highlight New Jersey artists, highlight New Jersey businesses, and create a fun off-the-Internet experience,” Sullivan says.

The first series of artist stickers features work from eight artists with New Jersey ties: Kaitlin Brito, Rachel Casey, John Cozz, Sam Grinberg, Elise Miguel, Suo, Whit Taylor, and Yardsale Press. The work spans a wide range of subjects: some New Jersey-related, like Grinberg’s interpretation of the Jersey Devil, and some not, like Brito’s homage to her dog. There is also a Kickstarter-exclusive sticker, which will be designed by Alex Flannery. 

The project is being launched via Kickstarter campaign that runs until Monday, October 31. People who are interested in supporting the project can contribute any amount, or they can purchase physical rewards from $6-$40. “Funding the project via Kickstarter is also a way to offer the stickers for sale to anyone who won’t be able to visit the machine,” says Sullivan.
