Artist Clark Stocekley announced on Twitter that he’s auctioning off the WikiLeaks truck. The iconic vehicle, that temporarily went missing, has become a mobile mascot for Occupy Wall Street and he hopes to create more, but first he must sell this one. Per the item’s eBay description: “Clark’s New Year’s resolution is to expand the WikiLeaks Truck project and make a fleet around the world.”
The starting bid is $7,500 and although no one has made an offer, it has attracted over 16,000 views so far. With all the institutions clamoring for OWS paraphernalia and this truck being a frequent target of the NYPD anyway, would this not make a great addition to the Smithsonian?
