Our Work Continues: Traveling with a Mobile Art Gallery


ANNIKA: It really does feel like just a small
gallery space I mean yeah the walls are a little thin, but it doesn’t feel like
an 18-wheeler once you get inside it. I think people don’t realize that takes a
lot of precision and care to really take care of just the
truck itself. [Music] I mean I feel like every town that I go to is something new, Every place is just a little bit different, every place has its own uniqueness to it. So much of the time you go into a
gallery, and people just expect you to know how to think about art. What I really see is just
getting to teach people how to talk about art – so many
people come in and are like “well I don’t do art or I don’t talk about art,” and it’s my favorite thing in the world
to hear almost because then I can focus on a piece and I can say,
“well what do you see in this? What emotion are you
feeling about this?” The theme for my exhibition this year which is “The Spirit of Independence” I mean I really think each artwork talks about its own idea of
Independence, the harder part I think is just getting
people to associate that with the artwork. I feel like, in a sense, I was like
made for a job like this where I to travel, where I get to see these new things and I get to experience these artworks in different ways, in different places every time I come in, and I get to talk about them
in a different way every time I come in
