Thank you Backers! 

Truck Yeah was a big success and we appreciate your support in making it happen. We had great weather and over 1,000 guests stopped by to take part in the fun. We were happy to see those of you who came on Sunday and picked up your rewards. For those who couldn't make it, we'll be reaching out soon to send them to you!

We'd like to share some of the press we've received, including this piece in the  NYU Washington Square News

Thank you again for helping us make Truck Yeah such a successful event, we couldn't have done it without you!

Our best,
Hannah, Genevieve and Liz

Truck Yeah on Bowery Boogie // Partnership with Creative Time!

Comment

Supporters and Friends,

We are very excited to be about halfway towards our fundraising goal of $8,000! We appreciate all the support you have given us thus far, but we want to keep the momentum going these last two weeks. Please pass our project along to anyone that might be interested, and remember it only takes $1 to pledge!

This weekend our artists paid a visit to the Ryder truck facility to gear up for Truck Yeah. Take a look at some photos from our visit here. Don’t forget to check out our latest post about El Camino ARTRV artist Stephen Zerbe, and read the blog about us on Bowery Boogie!

We are also thrilled to announce that we have partnered with the incomparable public art organization Creative Time to celebrate and activate the Lower East Side community this fall. Beginning September 24, Creative Time will present Living as Form, an unprecedented, international project featuring over twenty years of socially engaged projects in a large-scale archival survey exhibition at the historic Essex Street Market.

The project brings together twenty-five curators, documents almost 100 artists' projects, features nine new commissions onsite and in the surrounding neighborhood, and provides a dynamic online archive of over 350 socially engaged projects. Projects range from theater to activism, and urban planning to visual art, emphasizing participation, dialogue, and community engagement.

We at Truck Yeah have always admired Creative Time for its informed, adventurous, and effective programming, and are excited to host our event alongside their hub on the Lower East Side.

For more information about Living as Form, visit www.creativetime.org/livingasform, follow on Twitter @creativetimenyc, and visit from September 24–October 16, 12-8pm.

Keep following our participants and us on facebook, tweet @truck_yeah (using #truckyeah) to stay informed on the project’s development!

All our best,

Hannah, Liz, and Genevieve

Truck Yeah!

Comment

Hey everyone! 

We're very excited to launch our campaign, and are thrilled to see that it's getting off to a promising start. Thank you to the New Museum and Creative Time for including us in their curated kickstarter pages, and to all those who have already pledged!

The Gawker site Jalopnik has generously spread the word about us, and announced "Street Meat Week," which will feature a new food truck each day leading up to the event! 

Check out the post here

Also, if you’d like to see the work of the Lonely Goat Dance Company before they perform for Truck Yeah, pay a visit to Galapagos Art Space this Sunday evening at 7:30 pm. Tickets are $15 ($10 for students).

We are looking forward to sending more updates about each of the participants in the event, and greatly appreciate your support!

Liz, Hannah, and Genevieve
