We had a great time on last night at the “Art on Wheels” Community Celebration and Friend Raiser. With nearly 50 works of art submitted by local artists, live music, and the chance to see some amazing antique trucks up close and personal, the first year of “Art on Wheels was the perfect way to raise awareness about the Bickford Education Center, Bickford Truck Collection Museum and Pavilion, and the programs offered through Aratascope at bec, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that raises money for its experiential education programs by offering art classes and studio memberships in Yarmouth.
The theme was inspired by Erv Bickford’s beloved vintage truck and transportation collection. Artwork was shown at various venues throughout Yarmouth, including The Yarmouth History Center, 317 Main, Merrill Memorial Library, and online, before the final display and silent auction at last night’s event.
Plans are already underway for next year’s “Art on Wheels” celebration. If you missed last night’s gala, here is the video that was presented.
