We are proud to announce the 2012 Philadelphia Pickup Truck Expo, to be held in the Icebox at the Crane Arts building June 2nd from 6-10 pm. Over a dozen pickup trucks representing artists, galleries and arts organizations will be parked in the Icebox on this evening. Each truck will house a unique artwork in its cargo bed, built specifically for the exposition. In addition, all hoods will be lifted to showcase various and handsome engines; attendees are encouraged to sit and daydream in the driver’s seat of each truck.
Participants have been asked to work alone or assemble a team in order to source a pickup truck, then create and install a piece within its cargo bed for this exposition. Trucks will be allowed into the Icebox 24 hours before the public opening- each piece will be assembled during this time.
In addition to the opening Saturday, June 2nd, there will be several truck themed events occurring, including a movie night May 31st at 8 pm and a motor oil/ transmission fluid leak monoprint show on Sunday, June 3rd after all trucks have departed.
Participants include among others:
Philadelphia Sculpture Gym
Rebecca Saylor Sack
Kali Yuga Zoo Brigade
Kacie Crooks Vecchio
Second State Press
Refreshments will be served!!
