Dave Ford Hits the Road Again for Art

Pencil-tipped water bottles

Newmanista and visual artist, Dave Ford, is ready to hit the road again. You will recall that Dave recently created a series of subway drawings in New York City. Now he is preparing to create a truck drawing, using the movement of a truck to create a 12’x 7’ drawing using pencil-tipped water bottles suspended over paper in the back of a moving truck. Ford will drive from El Paso to Grand Rapids - more than 1,600 miles. In the back of the truck, movement and time will create the truck drawing.

Dave Ford invites Newman Park Neighborhood residents to an open house/studio this Thursday, Sept. 16th, from 6 p.m. on as he prepares a Truck Drawing for competition in Arptrize 2010.

ArtPrize is a radically open competition. Open to any artist in the world who can find space. Open to anybody in Grand Rapids, Michigan who wants to create a venue. Open to a vote from anyone who attends. For more information visit

Info: Sept. 16th, 2808 Aurora Ave., between Piedras and Elm. 6 p.m. – midnight.
