About ARTery Go:ARTery Go is a mobile, bike powered, art cart connecting neighborhoods, artists, businesses and individuals to artist-created, pop-up art experiences that are purpose-built to pique curiosity and prompt interaction. Pop-up experiences include visual art projects proposed by local artists to be challenging, creative, and interactive. ARTery Go emphasizes socialization with a balance of demonstration, information, and fundamental technical arts education. The full experience is designed to increase exchanges between the artist and the audience where the audience is.
Artist Erika Nelson has been contracted to design and build the cart, expected to be finished in May of 2019. The cart will be outfitted with folding tables and chairs and have space for tubs containing project materials.
About the Call:Artist will be responsible for designing and implementing an interactive project with the support of Art Center staff. The ARTery Go cart will be pulled by bike to the River Festival grounds, where the artist and Art Center staff will find suitable locations for the proposed activity. This is our opportunity to test how well the cart can be moved and set up in new locations. Different projects will be done each day. Artist may submit multiple proposals.
