The VanGo! Museum on Wheels is a mobile art museum created by the Susquehanna Art Museum and developed as a response to the needs of a rural student population with limited exposure to museum-quality arts and crafts. The "VanGo" has since grown into a valuable resource for the Central Pennsylvania region. The program is intended to give students and community members an authentic art museum experience which reinforces existing curriculum and standards, while also encouraging deeper relationships with cultural objects. Visits include tours aboard the bus, group assemblies, and a group interactive. Exhibitions rotate on an annual basis. 

This year’s VanGo! exhibition, titled Behind the Scenes, is an exploration of the jobs and tools inside art museums. Through an engaging combination of interactive displays and original artworks by renowned artists, visitors will get first-hand experience as both curators and conservators. 

A VanGo!  Museum on Wheels visit is a wonderful addition to the ArtsFest experience- Located at the corner of State & Front Streets!
