Introducing Planet Rabbit: Tucson's First Mobile Art Gallery
Introducing Planet Rabbit: Tucson's First Mobile Art Gallery in it's early stages. We have the step van. Next is retrofitting into something that it was never intended to be: an Art Gallery on wheels. In this day and age of mobility, the white box no longer adequately suits the needs of the community. The term "outreach" used to mean sit in the same place as always, but put your arms out for a hug offering. Now a days, we need to bring the whole art gallery to the neighborhoods, to the community. In the age of the interwebs, our minds aren't tuned the same way as it was in the past. Planet Rabbit: Tucson's First Mobile Art Gallery will feature 2D and 3D art, installation art work, performance art work, music.
But first we have to work on the vehicle:
`Remove the existing lid of the vehicle.
Construct a new lid for head room.
`Add clerestory windows to allow natural light in.
`Strip the blue off the vehicle, which used to be a delivery truck for the San Francisco Chronicle. The letters can still be seen on the side. Allow the raw aluminum body to shine through.
`Create gallery walls in the interior.
`Add track lighting.
`Add art work.
