Shawn Theron’s Art Truck Serves Fine Art at Art Outside May 18th


SOGH ART TRUCK MOCKUPWhat makes Art Outside such a fun and unique event is, among other things, the diverse collection of artists that will be at this day-long, free arts festival on Sunday, May 18 at Druid Hill Park. One of those artists is Shawn Theron who will be unveiling Baltimore’s first-ever Art Truck at Art Outside. Similar to a Food Truck, Shawn’s Art Truck serves fun and varied artwork instead of food. The truck enables Shawn to take his artwork on the road to a variety of different venues like Art Outside, open the doors and show his work instantly.

#6 – On the ART TRUCK! approx 4’ x 2’ $120

The Art Truck is designed to engage and invite his audience in for a closer look. Shawn hopes passers by step inside to see his art firsthand. Paintings hang on the walls of the truck, they are stacked in bins, and drape onto the outside of the truck, too, once he stops and parks at a location. The Art Truck is great news for Shawn’s followers, which are many. He has sold 15 thousand paintings and counting.

Shawn and his Art Truck will be at Art Outside at Druid Hill Park on Sunday, May 18. This day long, free arts festival has doubled in size since last year and will feature more than 80 artists, strolling performers and musical groups, an area for “hands-on” arts and crafts for children, Baltimore’s best food trucks, and more. The event will be held rain or shine and there is plenty of free parking.

SOGH Brings Us Baltimore’s First Art Truck


Art Truck 1

catch of the day fish (2)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.
