Arlington Art Truck Launches

By Editorial Team on April 16, 2018

The Arlington Art Truck embodies Arlington Arts’ mission to revolutionize the traditional model of an arts venue. Packed with digital and traditional creative tools, the Truck is a curated mobile toolbox for artists.

From April – October, selected artists will hit the streets of Arlington to engage the public in projects designed to blur the line between participant and presenter. The Arlington Art Truck is easy to spot as it has been hand-painted by internationally-renowned artist, Stephen Powers.

The Truck launches its debut season with Bipedal Soundscapes, by area artists Emily Francisco and Alex Braden. This sound sculpture is activated by visitors pedaling a stationary bicycle and is comprised of a five-tiered turntable housing vinyl records. Don’t miss it.

Bipedal Soundscapes will be cruising the streets and ready to engage the public on the following dates*:
