Subject: I Need Crew!
To: Gavin Kr=
oeber <gavin=>

Dear F=

I'm hoping I can ask a favor of you: I need crew! And I know you know c=
rew here in NYC. Creative Time has a major show loading into the Park Avenue=
Armory the week of 9/15 and I need to supplement the crew we already have. =
If you could please pass this along to anyone you know that might qualify, i=
t would mean a lot.

I need lighting, A/V and artwork install crews as well as teams to take car=
go vans and box trucks around to studio spaces for artwork pickups for the f=
ollowing dates:

9/17 =96 1pm =96 9pm (maybe 11pm)
9/18 =96 Daytime hours
9/19 =96 Daytime hours
9/20 =96 8pm =96 8am next day

There may be some work the 15th and 16th as well.
Strike is 9/27 overnight and 9/28.
I think I'm good for running crew during the week, but if there's s=
omeone comfortable with light, AV and art handling I might be able to make a=
technical site management position available (PT or FT) 9/21-9/27.

Pay rate is $20/hour, $30/hour for the late-night shifts.

Its a great group of people already on board =96 we just need more! And the=
program is freakin' amazing (I've attached a press release) – more =
festival than exhibition, its the culmination of a nationwide series of work=
s we've been working on all year (I'm just back from producing perfo=
rmances for the occasion of the DNC and RNC, actually!) – static works by ov=
er 40 artists and ton of performance over the week.

If you can, please have any solid crew you might know contact me – email or=
phone. Its short notice and I need to find people FAST! Here are some very =
basic descriptions of the different crews, in case useful. And please ask me=
any questions you might have. Thanks!

To run cable, hang and focus fixtures. Reasonable experience in theater or =
event production lighting, though the equipment we're using is pretty ba=

To set up projectors, fast fold screens, monitor and flatscreen displays as=
well as audio. Theatrical, event or gallery experience wiring and focusing =
AV setups a must, though again these are pretty basic installs.

To hang framed works, move and place sculptural works, assemble display ele=
ments, etc. The works are all artworks, but someone with carpentry and/or pr=
oduction experience for theater would do fine.

To drive trucks/vans to artist studios, load artworks (some heavy sculpture=
s) and deliver to site. Basically the same profile as the install crew.
