goodbye icecream van! see you next year.

Glues society's (collective) - Ice Cream truck.

exhibited at the 10th annual sculpture by the sea,Australia's largest annual free of contemporary sculpture.

The Ice cream truck took home both the peoples choice and the kids choice award.

explained by the collective to be " A statement on the perils of global warming" but even striped of its social commentary, its still a compelling piece.

Ive seen a few art pieces of ice cream vans, I'm not sure how as a society we see these trucks and in more political based work, like Banky's what the symbolise?

is it only a working class summer tradition to get ice creams from "the ice cream man"?
