This event has ended.

This exhibition inside Umbrella Arts will feature small intimate paintings made on the road and in the artists CT based studio. This art exhibition is on wheels and will be seen all over Manhattan and Brooklyn at Bushwick Open Studios and HOWL Festival in the East Village. This also kicks off a fundraising campaign to keep truck’n with Vito going and spreading the word about Autism and artistic talent.

Vito Bonanno is known for his innovative style of street art merged with images that are inspired by his Autism. Vito frequently exhibits throughout Connecticut and NYC. Since 2010, Vito has exhibited widely throughout Connecticut, New York, Chicago, Miami and the Hamptons. His work has received public recognition via numerous awards and honors given by institutions throughout the Northeast. Vito is a role model for other artists with autism who see the world in a unique and often unfiltered way, and want to share their vision with us.

During this month-long celebration Vito’s Mobile Art Mart will make stops at Fountain Gallery, LAND, Bushwick Open Studios, and HOWL Festival in Tompkins Square Park. Other stops in Summer 2014 will include the SoNo Arts Festival in Norwalk, CT. In the Fall he will visit the DUMBO Arts Festival, the IAM Festival, OpSail, Envision Fest, LAMP, the SOFA Fair, Wynwood Arts District in Miami, FL in December and METRO Curates in January, 2015.

Truck’N with Vito will be a beacon of light and inspiration to those on and off the Autism spectrum. It will promote awareness of the potential of the untapped creative and productive lives that might never have a chance to be realized. The public, businesses and communities must change the way they perceive these artists as cultural contributors and advocates for accessible resources in the state and beyond.
