What kind of public art project do I want to work on?

I do not have a public art experience mostly because of the craft I use for my work, but I created in 2013 a mobile and foldable display mounted on a bike trailer to display Art and Craft in the street , I used it in San Francisco to promote and sell my artworks for 6 years. The structure is called UpUpUp Art and works very well. These days with the virus situation it could be a great tool to showcase art in the street. It has a small footprint and facilitate social distancing. Here is the link where you can see the structure
