Space Cowboy is an exhibit featuring three Minnesota artists known collectively as Rural Aesthetic Initiative. Thematically, the show is an exploration of body, mind, and spirit. From the outer limits of the imagination to the ordinarily mundane, Space Cowboy is a literal vehicle for the aesthetic explorations of the artists: it is hosted by the Traveling Museum, a 6 by 10 foot mobile gallery. As a wheeled structure, Space Cowboy also challenges traditional assumptions about the nature of museums, and in a broader sense represents exploration and mobility.
Designed and curated by Rural Aesthetic Initiative, The Traveling Museum is a mobile project space for public art and ideas. Pop up exhibitions, happenings, art projects and mobile art residencies are all feasible within the Museum’s efficient fish house inspired architecture.travelingmuseum.com
