The Globe and Mail, Oct. 12, 1998

Review of collective Truck Stop 12's Mobile art in vans parking lot art show outside of Dufferin Mall. The collective's 12 artists each made a piece displayed in their van and all the works are linked by the theme of travel or transience. To these artists, as to "regular folk", art galleries can be intimidating places, so they bring their art to people-friendly public spaces.
