Arts Etobicoke and Lakeshore Arts announce the second year of
Four wheels and no wheels make up 2010's moving canvases

ART ON THE MOVE, an inter-generational, cross-city community initiative put on by Arts Etobicoke and Lakeshore Arts, is heading down the road at full speed toward the official “unwrapping” of five vehicles turned into moving works of art. The ART ON THE MOVE “Unwrapping” and Launch takes place on Wednesday June 16 at the National Yacht Club.

Vehicles have recently become platforms for advertising, but ART ON THE MOVE creates unique mobile canvases to enliven the streets of Toronto. Crossing streets, boundaries, neighbourhoods, cultures and languages, ART ON THE MOVE paints a variety of vehicles with original artwork designed by artists in collaboration with kids, adults and seniors.

Five new teams of vehicle owners, artists and community groups are participating in this year's ART ON THE MOVE, the second in a three-year initiative. Artist Michael Brown is working with youth from the Harbourfront Community Centre to paint a 32 foot sailboat. Children of the Karen Kain School of the Arts are working with artist Susan Rowe Harrison to paint an AutoShare Ford Transit Connect minivan. Artist MEDIAH is working with at-risk youth from Youth Without Shelter to spray paint the shelter's van. A C1 art space minivan will be painted by artist Rebecca Baird and youth from the Native Canadian Community Centre. And artist Leah Gold is working with senior citizens at the Davenport-Perth Neighbourhood Centre to paint a Metroman truck.
