Arty is for sale on TradeMe

This mobile feast could be yours!!!

All funds received from the sale of Arty the art car, will go toward our art restoration project. We have a website that shows the artwork we have helped to restore so far and the artwork that we are raising funds to conserve.

With a bright orange fin on the roof and multimedia exterior and interior, this look captures the imagination of any innocent bystander. Imagine taking your kids to school every day in an Art Car, or using him to collect guests from the airport, or as a company vehicle – it would be hilarious! You could pull Arty apart and display a door or two on your wall – for example the drivers door features work from Timaru’s very own Mike Armstrong who’s work sells for thousands! As well as bringing some colour to the South Canterbury streets, Arty has been a fantastic vehicle for promoting the The Friends of the Aigantighe and the Gallery.

"The committee members, gallery staff and myself drove many students to balls, paraded him down Stafford street at Christmas Parades, parked him up at Festivals, outside the art gallery in the School Holidays and at Exhibition Openings. We will really miss Arty, he has been a fantastic way to get our name out there, and to entertain and inspire the community." says committee member Roselyn Fauth (nee Cloake)

He is starting to look a little tired now, and rather than repainting him, we have decided to pass him on. So please get in behind this auction to help us find a home for Arty and raise funds for our art restoration project.
