Art Truck

Recognized as best educational program in the State of Utah, the UMOCA Art Truck brings exciting and accessible contemporary art, created by leading local and national artists, directly to schools and community venues along the Wasatch Front. Each on-site visit by the Art Truck includes the services of a trained museum educator who leads students through a meaningful exploration of the current exhibition, as well as structured lesson plans for teachers who want to incorporate the Art Truck more deeply into the core curriculum.

Art Truck 2013-14: Calder Kamin

Calder Art Truck Synanthrope MandalaFocusing on the animals that have evolved to thrive in urban environments, artist and educator Calder Kamin from Kansas City, MO helps to create awareness of mankind’s impact on biodiversity. In conjunction with the Art Truck exhibition, visitors to the UMOCA Art Truck can aide their avian neighbors by participating in Kamin’s two part project, Impact Proof. Participants help prevent birds from colliding into windows by creating paper decals using one of Kamin’s stencil designs. As the second part of the project, Kamin encourages the community to assist scientific research by sharing their observations of nature through crowd sourcing.

Birders at any level can try Kamin’s illustrated survey of Salt Lake City area birds. Data from completed surveys will be sent directly to the Audubon Society with the UMOCA Art Truck eBird account. Visual analysis of the survey information will be shared for the duration of the exhibition provided by eBird.
