Crowdfunding: Transformed Truck To Take Art & Architecture on the Road

"What better way to spread the gospel of design than to liberate it from its brick-and-mortar foundations and take it on the road?" This is the idea behind Circus for Construction - a competition-winning proposal to transform a semi-truck into a traveling exhibition space for art and architecture. If the project reaches its Kickstarter fundraising goal, it will be visiting Provincetown, Providence, Ithaca, Buffalo, Portland, and Boston this coming fall.

In each location, the alternative and experimental gallery space will highlight local expertise and talent, hosting supplementary lectures, workshops, events, and even serving beer. The project challenges the idea that artwork needs to be sought out by the viewer, shaking up stereotypes about what a gallery is supposed to be.

The project was one of ten selected last May by Storefront for Art & Architecture's WorldWide Storefront competition, an initiative "to provide a simultaneous, multi-locus of alternative spaces around the globe... for the expression and exchange of latent desires within contemporary art and architecture practices." In order for this initiative to become a reality, the enthusiastic design team - consisting of Ann Lui, Larisa Ovalles, Craig Reschke, Ben Widger, and Ashley Mendelsohn - needs your help.
