Dina Benadon and Brent Young recently purchased the home in which Walt Disney was born in Chicago and are trying to restore it and turn it into a museum. The house was built by Disney’s father and Disney lived their from his birth in 1901 until 1905. Benadon and Young are trying to raise $500,000 through Kickstarter to achieve their goal.
The Northlake (IL) Public Library is holding a crowdsourcing project to purchase and install a 9-foot tall statue of the Incredible Hulk at the library. The funds would also be used to increase the size of the library’s graphic novel collection and to build an interactive station that includes an iMac with a drawing pad, Cintiq interactive pen display, a 3D printer, and a Artograph Light Tracer Elite. The library’s goal is $30,000 by June 9.
