Do a doodle and receive an organic non-pesticide whole food – a fruit or vegetable. Exercise and make a nutritious smoothie or even better, collaborate with a few other doodlers and create a magnificent smoothie.
A new addition to the doodling experience, the Doodle Bike Blender, traveled with the Doodle Cart last April to Georgia, North Carolina, and Virginia. The first stop was the Art Department at Albany State University in Albany, Georgia. Rutkovsky gave a presentation about the origins of the Doodle Cart and the Art Alleys and also met with students in a critique workshop. The following day the Doodle Cart and Doodle Bike Blender were installed at the Tift Park Community Market, where many people doodled and some volunteered to exercise and create a smoothie.
The next stop was Radford University not far from the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains in Virginia. The Doodle Cart was part of a weekend art and music festival that was centered around the BFA and MFA graduating exhibitions. Three days later the cart and bike set up at the Hendersonville Community Food Coop in North Carolina for the lunch, dinner, and shopping customers. The Doodle Bike Blender was outdoors on a sunny day and seemed to attract more adults. The final visit was at the Tailgate Market in Ashville, sponsored by the French Broad Food Coop. The market was similar to a farmers’ market but also included arts and crafts, which made for a diverse mix of visitors, including many tourists who approved of doodling and exercising.
