The Arlington Art Truck will be bringing What's Your Sign by Paul Shortt to Food Truck Thursdays on May 16th!

The Arlington Art Truck will set up at various locations temporarily placing signs around the area with a sign-making station along with a selection of pre-made signs for you to take home, providing useful, funny and odd reminders about how we engage with our environment.
