Commissioning innovative mobile artworks
The Transported haulage programme demonstrates perfectly the Transported ethos of “transporting art” and making it accessible.
2016 – present
The second ‘Art on Lorries’ project, Fenland Folk, celebrated people and events from the area, designed by Electric Egg. Each inspiration for the design was chosen by a FreshLinc employee who has been depicted on the rear of the respective trailer explaining why they chose the person or subject.
We often get told that the lorries have been spotted, so much so that we developed a spotter’s guide! Download them below:
As part of our ongoing partnership with FreshLinc, designed wraps on their lorries put art on a moveable canvas that reaches not only those in Lincolnshire, but beyond to Europe. They also celebrate our local area and what makes it special, in another recurrent theme of the Transported programme as a whole. The first ‘Art on Lorries’ project, Lincolnshire Loveliness, by artist Alisha Miller was completed and the final ten FreshLinc lorry designs were unveiled in April 2015, after a parliamentary launch of the first lorry in July 2014. We have also worked with Boston Borough Council on a similar project for their Refuse Freighters. This approach takes our partners through the commissioning process.
