Shia LaBeouf is hitchhiking across the country for art
Commissioned by the Boulder Museum of Contemporary Art and The Finnish Institute in London, LaBeouf, Rönkkö, and Turner are hitchhiking across the country for a project called #TAKEMEANYWHERE. The project, which is set to run for a month from May 23 to June 23 and is supported by Vice, invites the public to pick up the three collaborators and give them a ride to a location of the driver's choosing. The artists are tweeting their GPS coordinates with the hashtag #TAKEMEANYWHERE so that drivers can find them. As of this writing, LaBeouf and friends are in Grand Island, Nebraska.
According to Time, LaBeouf stated that the project was about making friends and finding meaning in life. As part of the project, he also pledged to do anything that participants ask of him, within reason. Denver native Brandon Glanton and a group of his friends were the first to pick up the three artists in Lyons, Colorado. According to Glanton, LaBeouf wasn't worried about anything untoward happening on the journey.
"He kept referring to himself as a mirror," said Glanton. "He was saying that if he's a mirror that puts out good, then good will reflect back to him."
