Well kind of. There has been a giant hot dog rolling around Brooklyn Bridge Park all summer and it certainly is a sight to see. Affectionately known as the Hot Dog Bus, this bright yellow eye-catcher is actually a functional art installation brought to New Yorkers by the Public Art Fund and Austrian artist Erwin Wurm to serve a quintessential summer staple to hungry park-goers.
The piece of edible art was originally a vintage Volkswagon Microbus and has been transformed into an overstuffed shape resembling a hot dog and doubles as a mobile food vendor. While it is not your typical art installation in the traditional sense, the Hot Dog Bus brings a more interactive viewing (and eating) experience and actively engages participants in a way you can’t get in a museum. Brought on by the Public Art Fund, the New York Food Truck Association staff have been happily handing out free hot dogs and plans to do so every weekend until the end of the summer.
Grab a bike, the kids, Fiddo, or go for a solo run in the park and stumble upon something unheard of…free food! Enjoy and keep an eye out for the Hot Dog Bus.
