The concept of a food truck is one that we know very well: they drive to a location and set up shop, we find them and give them all of our money for delicious unhealthiness. We never considered taking that idea and applying it to art. A collective of artists in Hawaii known as Big Banyan have created the "Art Truck," a mobile art gallery that showcases and sells art from local and international artists. The artists involved sell their works for prices under $250 and keep 60% of the profits, giving the rest to the collective to pay for the truck and other expenses. Truck whereabouts are announced via social media, as the truck doesn't have a normal spot and goes where the people are. The plan is ingenious and we think that it could take off in other cities around the world.
