Ever wake up in ...

Miami one day, Nashville the next, Dallas the day after, and then spend a week in the middle of nowhere New Mexico? José Luis Vílchez and Cora Rose of "Art We There Yet?" have done as much, and will continue to do so for the next 30000 miles. They've made it their mission to see through a shared vision of celebrating humanity and its affinity for the arts. They are traveling the Americas to spread their joy and wonder-- creating programs for kids and adults in every kind of community, erecting murals across the country that radiate absolute beauty, and leaving behind landmarks that millions will come to experience as an understanding of passion and love for art and its effects on the human condition.

Keeping the Art Moving

As artist you have to respect your craft and ensure you don't skip the details or let inspiration slip away. Without power, it would be almost impossible for Cora and Jose to get creative and enjoy everyday modern comforts.

Off-Grid Home, Off-Grid Canvas

It goes without saying that their project requires a reliable off-grid power application due to the nature of their project and they have found an amazing solution.

From Dusk Till Dawn

With an incredible 100W inverter, 6000W worth of back up power, and an infinite need for inspiration, they'll be in good hands

With a Long Road Ahead
