Ali’s group, ‘Art on Wheels’ brings ephemeral art to the masses by modifying vendor carts into portable projection systems that can roll to a site, set up and illuminate city walls at a moment’s notice, then whisk away into the night. Also, see the first projector, the “magic lantern,” that’s still in use today. Learn more about Ali Momeni and Art on Wheels at http://minneapolisartonwheels.org/.
