Art Truck: A new way to buy art
The art truck is a concept we came up with to connect the creators of art to the appreciators of art. We sell art by local, international, and student artists from the truck, which we drive to wherever the people who love art are. You'll find us at public events such as festivals, markets, and trade fairs. We also park the truck at various locations around Oahu (follow us on twitter to find out where) and visit residential/commercial locations on an appointment basis.
