CINCINNATI— A refurbished military vehicle turned mobile community center for new media art practices is coming to Cincinnati from July 3–5 as part of the Cincinnati Art Museum’s No Spectators: The Art of Burning Man exhibition. 

The ArtCrawler is a 32-foot former US military vehicle that has been transformed to provide opportunities for the public to participate in artmaking and technological exploration. The vehicle has participated in the annual Burning Man event in Nevada’s Black Rock Desert.

Under the direction of creator and artist Sean Pace along with Adam Larson (artist, projection designer and filmmaker), the ArtCrawler will provide visitors with a hands-on opportunity to work in wood, metal, and video. ArtCrawler (Community Roving Artists Workshop Lab for Educational Research) is a mobile education lab and workshop bringing technological design tools, hardware, software, and development facilities to lower and middle-income students with limited access.

“The No Spectators exhibition is inspiring visitors every day inside our museum, and now we are excited to provide an interactive art experience outside the museum, in Cincinnati neighborhoods,” said Carrie Atkins Maras, Cincinnati Art Museum’s Associate Director of Community Engagement.
