We have been invited to participate in the NADA Hudson art fair July 28-29, 2012.  We will present and installation and series of performances.

We are creating an installation centered around a food truck that offers coffee, cake, and performative therapy.

The centerpiece of the installation will be the Sherry Truck.  This is a mobile sculpture and performance platform that offers an always changing and incongruous array of merchandise, such as pink lattes, cakes, t-shirts, high heels, "therapy" sessions, doll lamps,  and sculptures from Sherry's life.  These items  play with the fetishization of the artist and all that she touches, and the mobile sculpture/performance platform provide a way to connect with new and different audiences.

Sherry has performed throughout the US and Europe, in galleries and theaters, and the Sherry Truck will be a new platform to enable more direct interaction with her audience.

The “Sherry truck” will be an eco-friendly mobile performance space hosted by my character, Sherry. It will be converted from a used bread or ice cream truck and run on bio diesel and solar power. The truck will be versatile performance space and a working coffee truck.

NEXT STEP $2,500:

We purchased the truck, and now we need your Sherrify it and get it  ready for the fair.  The Sherry Truck installation will consist of the Sherrified Truck on display as a mobile sculpture and performance platform, and several performances.  We will use the money we raised to paint the exterior of the truck, and install a service window, and get the truck ready for the performances.

Phase 2 - Eco Boost: Goal $10,500

As a sculpture and performance platform, we would like the truck to be Carbon-Neutral and self sufficient.  We would like to install solar panels on the roof and a generator to power the latte machine, fridge, lights, sound system, etc  of the truck.  We would also like to convert the truck to run on bio-diesel.  These upgrades will cost an additional $8000

Thank you for your support!!  Help us help you help yourself!!!

Love, Sherry
