Express Vehicle Project

Tavera’s Express Vehicle concept provides a space in South Minneapolis for visual art, performance and film, with a focus on artists of color from the community. Tavera will research building a mini-gallery from a repurposed train freight car or 40-foot shipping containers with large windows, with the surrounding plot serving as a creative space. When closed to the public, the art would be visible from the street.
