Artists going mobile

Art on the Move is a new gallery on wheels in San Diego

Art on the Move is a new mobile art-gallery project by a group of San Diego artists who want to share their art in various neighborhoods.

The group will rent a moving truck and convert it into a temporary mobile art gallery—from 5 to 8 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 5, it'll be at Mira Mesa High School (10510 Reagan Road). For their first event, they've teamed up with Curbside Bites, a company that puts together food-truck gatherings around Southern California, so you can grab a bite during the art opening, too.

Featured artists include EZ Rock, Linda Halsey and Optimus Volts. Art on the Move will also feature interactive aspects like a create-your-own-sticker station for folks to participate in a sticker swap with the artists.

Here's more information from an email sent from Art on the Move:

Art on the Move is created as sort of an artist collective. It started with a group of artists that wanted to have more opportunities to bring their art to the people in their communities. We teamed up with Curbside Bites in order to provide a fuller event with food, music, and art that is more accessible to the public and people that don't normally make it to art shows.

Each of the events we intend to hold will showcase local artists who are dedicated to their craft and want a new way to engage with a new audience that may not have the opportunities to frequent galleries. Interested artists can send an email to theArtontheMove@gmail.com, or find the fan page on facebook at www.Facebook.com/theArtontheMove

At our events, participating artists will collaborate on a unique art piece that will be raffled to anyone that has bought a piece of art from the artists. In an effort to provide affordable art, art on display will be $150 or less.
