The Make Mobile or Hacerimóvil is a new project of The Hart Street Makery that seeks to take the creativity, learning, and play of the makery onto the streets, especially amidst a global pandemic. This 27 foot Ford E-450 was a shuttle bus for the Akron MTA but now it's becoming a mobile art studio for kids!
Help us make the Make Mobile a reality!
You can support the project by purchasing an item for the bus from our wish list or by donating to the GoFundMe. Thank you to the Weaver Chapel Association of Wittenberg University, Good Shepherd Lutheran of Springfield, OH, and Christ Lutheran of Old North Dayton for donating resources and person-power to this project. A special thanks goes to the Wittenberg students who scrubbed down the whole bus and gave it a primer coat of paint.
This bus will be a driving chalkboard, ready for kids to cover it in art each day! We need your help purchasing the chalkboard paint for the final coat on this bus. We're also installing RV gutters to collect rainwater for the handwashing sink (see below). The bus will also be lit up with outdoor solar lights. Click on the links to take you to our wish list.
The bus will have storage and activity areas inside. We're installing and RV sink to help wash hands, clean off brushes, etc. This sink will even be replenished by rainwater collected by the exterior gutters. We also need art supplies to stock the bus!
