Dave Ford talking to Penske employees at Penske Corporate Headquarters in Reading, PA

Dave Ford and the Truck Drawing Chicago to Philadelphia (round trip) are in Philadelphia for the weekend. Today he’s spending the day at Penske Corporate Headquarters talking to the media and Penske employees.

“I had a fantastic croissant sandwich from the cafeteria and everyone at Penske is really excited about the truck drawing,” says Ford.

Saturday night Dave will park the Penske Rental Truck at 1733 E. Passyunk Avenue from 6-10 p.m. as part of the Second Saturday event. Be sure to stop by and say hello to Dave and check out the drawing. Click here for information about Second Saturdays.

About Dave Ford

An avid collector of handwritten grocery lists, Dave Ford graduated from Grand Valley State University with a BFA in 1993. Afterward, in typical American folklore fashion, Mr. Ford moved to the art dormitory of the eastern U.S., also known as Williamsburg, Brooklyn. There he continued making art, participated in group shows and began creating his “Truck Drawings.” The drawings, which document the truck’s movement with dozens of pencils, proved to be fruitful and were featured in the sixth edition of Dave Eggers', McSweeneys in 2000. This attention generated several commissioned drawings and with the artist’s subsequent move to El Paso, Texas, long distant drawings to Connecticut and San Francisco became logistically possible. The opportunity to do a live drawing from the El Paso-Juarez Border to Grand Rapids for the Artprize event has re-invigorated the truck idea. Dave Ford is currently living in Evanston, Illinois, where he is working on a Swing Set Drum Kit piece.
