With this year's tax return, with funds I've saved and with the funds I raised, gulp, nearly two years ago, I'm finally ready to build my mobile studio. The delay had to do with life choices and the finalized decision to build it on wheels - thus making it a far more expensive venture. Non-the-less, this year is going to be the year. In my planning for the big event, I've been revisiting just what I want to do with the space; how I'm going to utilize the space, design, efficiency etc. A lot of decision making is going to depend on the trailer, which I have yet to purchase, due to size and weight limitations. That being said, I've come across some very interesting things in my research. One of which is this awesome idea: Range Studio, by a husband and wife team in CA.
On the short side of the story, this was built to fit into a parking spot and is being used as a studio for residencies and such. I highly recommend you check out the website, Range Studio, for all the details and info, but in the mean time, let me ponder all the interesting ways I could take this idea and use it right here where I live.
Take for example, First Fridays (let's not forget neighboring towns have special art events as well)! A mobile art gallery! Perhaps one month a gallery, the next a live music venue all of which fits in a typical parking spot! Connecting with community! Grants to build a possibility? Sometimes a mini shop to sell my goods? Sometimes a little workshop? Oh my my! I'm so very excited about the ideas!
I would think 4x8' or 5x8' would be good using nearly all refurbished goods. . .
