We are aware that COVID-19 is affecting the scheduling of events and other gatherings throughout our community. As we all work together to respond to this crisis, we understand that many events on this site may not yet be updated with the most current closure information. We encourage you to check with event organizers and venues regarding the status of any event you are looking to attend. Thank you.
We have all been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, the uncertainty and the anxiety brought with it, sadness for what we have lost, and grief for those who have suffered. At Rbhu, we believe that art plays a key role in lifting the human spirit; it ignites our imagination with possibilities, it helps us process and express our feelings, and it brings people together for a collective cause. We believe that monumental sculptures have the power to help heal wounds. That is why we want to do our part and support our artist community by offering $30k worth of engineering services, so artists can again create and help lift the human spirit. As we pick-up the pieces from this crisis, let’s build something beautiful from it. Rbhu is a small engineering company that is driven by creativity and positive impact. Please help us spread the word about this opportunity so we can get in touch with many artists who are affected by this crisis.
What we are offering: Structural or mechanical engineering services for any size artwork, which can include analysis, construction drawings, and permit documents, depending on the project needs. Offerings will be broken down as follows:
