Dave Ford’s Truck Drawings record his drive this week from Santa Fe, NM, to Chicago, IL. To create the truck drawings, Ford drives an 18″ Penske rental truck, the back of which is lined with paper over which 100 pencil-tipped water bottle pendulums document the activity of the 1,300 mile journey. The final drawing is approximately 11 feet wide by 7 feet tall.
The public is invited to participate in the installation of the truck drawing panels, assisting Ford as he moves the drawings from the back of the truck into the main gallery at SHoP.
This Saturday’s art happening will be there first time Ford has shown Truck Drawings in Chicago.
