Art Cart Needs a Good Home
Earlier this summer, I Imagined Myself as a Meter Maid, a piece by artist/bus driver Paul Margolis, was exhibited in the lobby of the Bellevue Arts Museum. Now the artist—and his wife, artist Mandy Greer—are looking for a new place to store this quilted car, pronto. Via Greer’s blog:
We are hoping to donate it to someone or an organization, with the hope it can be on display so people can enjoy it. People always love this thing when it has been shown! Sadly we can’t store it any longer. It is life size, an exact replica (but quilted out of crazy stuff like vinyl and lace) of the Kushman style buggy driven by Seattle Parking Enforcement officers.
The artist tried donating it to Seattle Children’s Hospital; they wouldn’t take it unless he invested in a plexiglas case to house it.
What about you? Do you have a spot in your environment that is crying out for this object? If so, drop Paul Margolis a line ASAP.
