Guerrilla Truck Show Crowd Loved the Truck Drawing

A crowd was nestled against the back of the Penske Truck the entire evening

Last night’s Guerrilla Truck Show was a huge success with thousands of people crowding Fulton Street Market to view the latest in art and design emerging from this great neighborhood.

The Packer Schopf Gallery’s Penske Truck featuring Dave Ford’s Truck Drawing Chicago to Philadelphia (round trip) was parked on Aberdeen and Fulton Market and drew a huge crowd the entire evening.

Ford will dismantle the truck drawing today, removing the bottles, webbing and finished drawings. Each individual drawing will be photographed and sold through Packer Schopf Gallery.

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.
