3D Artist Peter J. Sucy Launches Project On USAProjects.org

HILTON, N.Y., Jan. 24, 2013 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ -- 3D lenticular artist, Peter Sucy, has recently launched his first project on USA Projects. The first microphilanthropy site dedicated exclusively to accomplished artists working in the United States, USA Projects is a unique online community where anyone can discover original projects from some of today's most innovative artists and make tax-deductible donations to support their work. With a funding success rate of over 75%, USA Projects has helped accomplished artists from thirty states realize their artistic projects with support from more than 14,000 unique donors.


The goal of Peter's "Virtual Visions Exhibit" project is to raise $23,000 by April 15th, to begin the production of a traveling exhibit of his 3D lenticular artworks. Lenticular printing is a process that uses a special lens sheet to provide a glasses-free, 3D viewing experience on a 2D print.

The "Virtual Visions" series spans nearly 28 years of digital artworks, the genesis being the birth of digital photography and arrival of 3D applications for desktop computers.

Gallery The artist believes that back lighting 3D lenticular images creates a more immersive viewing experience. To that end, he has designed what he calls a "Multi-Dimensional Display Portal". A stylish alternative to a standard light box, utilizing an ultra-thin LED panel, semi- transparent and solid surface acrylic materials.

The funds raised will be used to print the 3D lenticular transparencies, purchase custom LED panels, acrylic materials, and construct the "Multi-Dimensional Display Portals". The final goal being the production of at least sixteen units for a traveling exhibit. Read more here: USA Projects.org As a program of United States Artists, the nonprofit grantmaking and advocacy organization for artists, USA Projects is uniquely aware of the needs of the artist community and provides an active support network and education program for artists. Donations simultaneously support artists' projects and the nonprofit mission of United States Artists: to invest in America's finest artists and to illuminate the value of artists to society.

USA Projects is also the only microphilanthropy site that offers a patent-pending Match Fund program that gives any individual, group, organization, foundation, or corporation the ability to create a matching fund, specify their criteria, and automatically identify and apply funds to appropriate projects. In total, more than $350,000 in matching funds has been committed from donors since the program's launch.

The site features artistic projects in eight categories: architecture and design; crafts and traditional arts; dance; literature; media; music; theater arts; and visual arts. Each artist sets his or her own fundraising goal and deadline. The public can browse, learn about the artists and their backgrounds, and follow or donate to any active project that inspires them. Supporters can give as little as $1 or as much as they would like and receive a tax deduction as well as exclusive project "perks" offered by participating artists. If a project does not reach its fundraising goal by the deadline set by the artist, the artist does not receive any funding.

All of the artists seeking funding on USA Projects have been recognized for the caliber and impact of their work. Eligibility is currently open to honorees and grantees from prominent international, national, regional, and local organizations, including the USA Fellows program. Additional qualifying organizations are added on an ongoing basis. National partner organizations include American Composers Forum, Film Independent, Creative Capital, Franklin Furnace, National Association of Latino Arts and Culture (NALAC), National Performance Network (NPN), Penland School of Crafts, the Pollack- Krasner Foundation, and Rhizome. Regional partner organizations include the Arkansas Arts Council, Artist Foundation of San Antonio, Austin Film Society, California Community Foundation, Fleishhacker Foundation, Jerome Foundation, Maine Arts Commission, McKnight Foundation, North Carolina Arts Council, PEW Center for Arts & Heritage, and South Carolina Arts Commission. Seed funding for USA Projects was provided by the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation of Kansas City and The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts.

About Peter J. Sucy A 1980 BFA photo graduate of RIT, Peter was among the first digital art and photography pioneers. Purchasing a Macintosh 128K computer for his part time, freelance photo business in 1984. He added a single element, photo sensor "scanner" to his ImageWriter printer the following year, and began scanning his photos and editing them in MacPaint, the only software available at the time. Employed by the Eastman Kodak Company for more than 27 years, Peter became an original member of Kodak's first Electronic Photography Division when the former Consumer Electronics Division was renamed in 1986.

Realizing the coming convergence of computers and photography before many at Kodak, Peter utilized the new desktop publishing tools at his disposal, to create hundreds of documents and proposals. Most were designed to persuade Kodak to abandon analog video image storage in favor of digital image storage devices connected to desktop computers.

Tapped in 1989 to draft Kodak's first digital product strategy, Peter conceived and designed a number of the very first digital products Kodak would ship, invented a key digital camera preview technology and was responsible for the establishment of the world's first digital imaging training facility, the Center for Creative Imaging, in Camden, Maine. Peter was an instructor at a smaller version at the Kodak Marketing Education Center in Henrietta, NY for several years. He was among the first group of Photoshop Digital Masters named by Adobe in 1993. His artwork was featured on the Photoshop 3.0 CD-ROM and in 1994, at a group show at the Ansel Adams Gallery in San Francisco.

Before symptoms from ME led to his early departure from Kodak in 2001, he consulted for Kodak's Dynamic Imaging Division where he would learn the intricacies of lenticular imaging. Pioneering the use of digital photographic 3D capture and 3D modeling programs for creating lenticular images at Kodak, he created 3D lenticular images for clients like Pepsi, R J Reynolds, Pfizer, Martell Liquor, FAO Schwartz, Purina, Disney and more.
