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

All our best,
Hannah, Liz, and Genevieve
