Mobile canvases on the Champs Elysees for Art Paris 2011

Just found this really cool project happening this weekend during ArtParis 2011! (http://www.thesqueeze.net/All-Categories/Business-Buzz/Fairs/Mobile-canv...) ArtParis 2011, the Paris springtime event for the modern and contemporary art market, is returning to the Grand Palais on March 31st to April 3rd 2011. This year, ArtParis is acting on the urban public scene with Move For Life, a mobile art intervention against poverty, aids, violence, racism and environmental destruction by Littmann Kulturprojekte (Basel). On March 30th at 1 PM, 8 lorries will drive down the Champs-Elysées before they converge towards the Grand Palais for the inauguration of ArtParis, at 1.30 PM. The aim of Move For Life is to create a dialogue between art and the public through major societal issues… using 13-meter trucks! Since March 1st, these 8 utility vehicles, covered with artworks, have crisscrossed the United Kingdom, Germany, Spain, France and Italy.On the occasion of its presentation for ArtParis 2011, works by Damien Deroubaix, Isabel Muñoz, Mark Titchner and Ben Vautier are presented for the first time. These pieces are joining those created by Daniele Buetti, Jochen Gerz, Attelier Van Lieshout and Robert Rauschenberg. By raising questions and triggering reflection, their creations, which express contemporary issues, allow for a direct confrontation between art and the public at large, outside the walls of museums and galleries. Throughout the duration of the art fair, some of the lorries will remain parked in front of the Grand Palais, while others will drive around Paris for the benefit of Parisians and will be located in symbolic sites of the French capital. From April 4th, the Move For Life lorries will resume their travels through Europe, each covering more than 250.000 kilometres per year and reaching more than 25 million spectators.

I just found the website - http://www.moveforlife.org/. Trucks as mobile works of art is a brilliant idea. Another example of art moving off the walls and out of museums onto the streets literally). I always wonder how effective art is as a medium to present messages like this though, do people actually pay attention?
