Art Cart at VIVA Vancouver

This summer Art Cart is joining VIVA Vancouver.

Join us every Saturday from 11.00 – 5.00  and Sunday from 12.00 – 5.00 at the corner of Granville and Robson.

The Art Cart is the only  human powered mobile art gallery and vending cart in Canada. Designed to be a platform for artists, particularity those facing marginalization, to transport, exhibit and their their unique art work. The Art Cart also increases access to locally-produced so to act as a hub for curated exhibitions and projects, community workshops and public events. Developed in collaboration between Oppenheimer Park and Gallery Gachet, The Art Cart aims to provide the opportunity for artists to gain experience in a public space, collaborate with other artists and generate an income off their art sales.

Viva Vancouver is part of the City of Vancouver’s goal to become the Greenest City in the world by 2020, encouraging sustainable and active transportation while increasing neighborhood livability in ways that benefit local businesses, community groups and diverse residents.

The Art Cart will be active on Granville Street between the 600 and 800 block.  So far, we have showcased artists from the Madness+Mobility Exhibition, as well as art works from own collectives members at Gachet. The Art Cart has also been present at the Powell street festival, working in conjunction with Oppenheimer park and their artist base. We look forward to furthering the accessibility of the Art Cart by featuring  our network of volunteers and many more artists from our local creative community.

 

Note: participation in VIVA Vancouver has now ceased, keep posted for the Art Cart’s foray into other festival arenas! We will make this information available to you all soon…
