Artists Are Making Semi-Trucks the Coolest Thing on the Road

Long hauls to the mountains can get boring. More often than not, any beautiful landscape outside the car window is blocked by a huge serving of McDonald’s fries plastered on the side of a semi-truck. Now, a new project in Spain is transforming these eyesores into something people will actually want to look at. For the Truck Art Project
, some of Spain’s best contemporary artists are partnering with commercial shipping company Palibex to convert 100 out-of-service trucks into moving canvases. The project launched with 10 trucks this February, with plans to introduce more this year.
