What is the Artmobile?
Artmobile is an art museum for all ages housed in a 48-foot semi-trailer. The Artmobile travels throughout Bucks County from September to June, visiting all 13 school districts and many public sites.
Artmobile is a non-collecting, traveling museum dedicated to providing the school children and residents of Bucks County access to fine, original works of art. It is a vital component of Bucks County Community College which provides important cultural outreach programs in accordance with the college's mission. We are committed to fostering an understanding of art, art making and the value of art in our communities and our lives by exhibiting and interpreting works of art.
Artmobile travels throughout Bucks County to schools and public sites. Trained, professional educators engage students of all ages in a dialogue about the art through tours geared to their grade level. At public sites, the educator is available to provide information and engage in informal discussion with visitors. Artmobile's exhibition program includes written materials sent to teachers prior to our visit with background information about the exhibit and practical, interdisciplinary ideas for related classroom activities in order to assist them in incorporating the Artmobile experience into their curricula.
Artmobile contributes to Bucks County Community College by providing a valuable service to our community, enhancing the college's public image, and promoting its presence throughout Bucks County. Through innovative and stimulating exhibitions appropriate for all ages, Artmobile establishes the college as a center for community services and cultural activities. By providing arts education programming for county schools, Artmobile supports the college's intention of serving as a resource to the community in areas of arts instruction. Artmobile is essential to the college's commitment to collaborative leadership in the arts.
