Traveling Museum

Traveling Museum is a mobile project space for contemporary art and ideas.


Designed and curated by Rural Aesthetic Initiative, The Traveling Museum functions as a mobile project space for public art.

Pop up gallery exhibitions, didactic art activities, happenings, individual artist projects, and mobile art residencies are all feasible within the Museum’s efficient fish house inspired architecture. Traveling Museum operates year round on the road and frozen lakes. We bring contemporary art places it never gets to go.
