Once upon a time, you would have been hard pressed to find a decent food truck in this city. Then there was a while when you could sometimes find one or two in particularly lunch-breaky areas. Now they have their own rallies and are a staple of any outdoor event; making life in Baltimore tastier and more gourmet everyday. So when we heard that Baltimore’s own Shawn Theron has plans to open Baltimore’s first Art Truck (like a food truck, but for art), we of course got excited. Shawn is a local treasure, to be sure; and the possibility that his truck might start a trend resulting in a city dotted with mobile local art vendors has us simply elated. You’ve probably seen Theron’s work at the American Visionary Arts Museum, where he was included in the All Things Round exhibit in 2011/2012. He’s primarily known for his abstract paintings that feature almost celestial looking forms in saturated landscapes. He’s also known for keeping his work affordable. CBS recently named him one of the best places in Baltimore to purchase affordable art.
