TRUCK YEAH! THIS SUNDAY (10/2) IN BILLYBURG

Food isn’t the only interesting thing coming out of trucks these days.  How about art, design and fashion, too?

The first annual Mobile Meet Up, a group of eleven trucks, each representing a different player in the rapidly growing “mobile culture” of New York City—from gourmet food, to fine art, music, design, and fashion—will convene in Brooklyn to celebrate the increased mobility and changing landscape of New York City.  Mobile units enable entrepreneurs to take risks, thereby creating a more energetic and colorful metropolis.

Truck Yeah, a Mobile Meet Up, is on Sunday, October 2, 2011 from 12-6pm at The Crown Victoria Bar at 60 S. 2nd Street in Williamsburg.

Art Cart NYC™’s third exhibition will present the work of Amia Yokoyama and Kennedy Yanko. Yokoyama will transform the truck into a cave-like environment and induce altered states of awareness through the use of light and sound.  Now that sounds freaky, and I mean that in the best way possible.

Etta Place will present Resident Artists, a salon style exhibition of works by local artists, including paintings by Malado Baldwin and Heather Morgan, works on paper by Alison Mazur, jewelry by Emily Miranda, wallpaper by Flat Vernacular and other curiosities. In addition, El Camino ARTRV will showcase REACTION SERVICES, a mock trucking company created by Stephen Zerbe, and Gawker Artists will present photographer Adam Courtney’s Box Project, for which he will invite the public to pose for portraits in a constructed set. BangOn! NYC will play music and Lonely Goat Dance Company will perform throughout the day.
