Rabbit Island: Bought on Craigslist, turned into an artist community with Kickstarter

In February of 2010, Rob Gorski (NYC) and Andrew Ranville (UK) purchased a 90 acre island on Craigslist (seriously), 3 miles off the coast of Michigan’s Keweenaw Peninsula. They recently ran a Kickstarter which was funded to facilitate their plan to build an Artist Residency on the island. This island is virtually untouched as it stands. Rob and Andrew are breaking ground this summer to build a single small cabin which will house resident visual artists, musicians, and writers. Best Made Co. threw ‘em some gear too.

I fantasise about projects like this.

    • I assume because it looks a bit like a rabbit head from above. I saw a discussion post on their Tumblr website: apparently some locals call it Traverse Island.
