Real Art Road Show
This is the kind of project I would LOVE to be involved in. The Real Arts Roadshow is the brainchild of Fiona Campbell (see below) who combined forces with art director Garald Barnett, and artist & art teacher Rob McLeod.
Together they began to buy art in order to deck out a truck as a travelling gallery and give school kids across New Zealand access to authentic New Zealand art! Genius! Art students can get up close and personal with the works, smell the paint, see the texture, appreciate colours and depth. I wish it had been around when I was a student.
For more information, to check out the on board artwork, or to give a donation (as with all these types of projects every little bit counts) check out the links... All photos from the Real Art Roadshow.
