A roaming art gallery that's touring parts of the country has found its way into the District.
The District's art scene isn't nationally renowned but when Neight Adamson of Find Art Magazine pulled into town he was hooked.
On Tuesday he parked near U Street at a temporary art space put on by Brightest Young Things and Art Wino and abandoned his road trip through the weekend. In the back of Adamson's truck are oil paintings and screen presses from young artists across the states, which he’s selling as he tours the country.
"I sold my own vehicle so that I could buy this truck and turn it into this gallery, and just drive around the country," he says. "Here I'm going 55 cities, 43 states and driving over 13,000 miles with no corporate sponsorship. This is just me trying to make something happen, start a movement."
After sleeping in the back of his truck since early May, Adamson says he was overwhelmed by the District's artists who gave him food, places to stay, and most importantly hot water.
His roving gallery tour ends in July in Los Angeles.
