1953 The Artmobile hits the road

The "Artmobile," a novel way of exposing fine art to the public, was conceived of and designed by the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts located in Richmond, Virginia. On this day the Artmobile, the world's first mobile art gallery, began touring Virginia with an exhibition of art objects, making its first stop in Fredericksburg. The Artmobile was an all-aluminum trailer, measuring over 30 feet in length with an interior height of nearly 80 feet.

My eyes like to play tricks on me. They took the "f" from "fine art" and placed it on the line directly below, just before "Artmobile."

Then I was wondering why you were writing about a "Fartmobile" and if that was you following me home last night...
