Dear Marisa and Justin,

My name is Marlene Frontera and I am writing you on behalf of THROAT, a non-profit art organization based in Brooklyn made up of recently graduated students from Rhode Island School of Design. I was given your contacts by Adbuster's Nicole whom I had contacted because the THROAT Team would love the opportunity to collaborate with Occupy Wall Street during its upcoming Art Truck event.

This moving art exhibition - which will be located in the back of a truck - will take place this first weekend of October. Artists have submitted from Spain, Canada, South Korea and all over USA. The truck will drive through and make stops in Brooklyn, Chelsea, LES, and Long Island City. We aim to show and promote new work by artists to unexpected audiences, providing anyone and everyone the opportunity to have their work seen. No one's work was turned down based on aesthetic biases. 

The truck is being provided by artist-run moving company Rabbit Movers.

THROAT was hoping to make Wall Street one of its stops this weekend.   

I just moved from Barcelona where I witnessed and joined the indignant crowds that occupied Plaça Catalunya. The similar current phenomenon that is Occupy Wall Street makes it an appropriate and exciting site for this inclusive truck to stop at. So far we are making stops at PS1, Washington Square Park, Chelsea, Dumbo and McCarren Park during the course of Saturday and Sunday.

We would appreciate if you could let us know if this is of interest to you and where would be most recommendable to park so that we can plan a time and day to stop.

Thank you in advance and we look forward to hearing back from you soon,

Marlene Frontera + THROAT Team
