From Sunday, March 19 through the fall of 2023 we will be displaying a Tuk Tuk art installation along Devon Avenue from Bell Ave. and Sacramento Ave.
Tuk Tuks are short distance 3-wheeled electric vehicles often found in South and Southeast Asia that have gained worldwide popularity. They are an entertaining and eco-friendly way to visit local areas.
Tuk Tuks are also called auto rickshaws, pigeons, mototaxis and many more names. They have been popularized in South Asia because of their convenience, affordability, size and intricate, colorful and vibrant decorations. You can find them all over South Asia like India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Nepal and many other Southeast Asia countries like Thailand, Laos and Cambodia, plus in many other countries around the globe.
These 3-wheeled electric vehicles are customized by their owners, so each one is unique and special. We invite you to join us and celebrate this mode of transportation and its cultural significance to the Devon Avenue South Asian community.
