Organisierte Ausflugsfahrten (Organized Bus Tours)
Sept. 17 - Sept.18, 2005
is a German expression which announces an "organized
excursion and drive." At Autocenter, I arranged professional bus tours of
the gallery’s courtyard. Tours departed every 15 minutes on the hour. The gallery was transformed into a waiting room where visitors
could to relax and drink coffee in anticipation of the next tour. Tours ran 4-6 minutes
and were complemented with easy-listening music. Passengers were
assured by the professional driver, and welcomed with a pre-recorded bilingual greeting: "Hello! Welcome to the Bus
Tour. Sit back. Relax. We hope you enjoy the ride!" The route provided
a 360º tour of the courtyard and consisted of a 16-point turn. In two days,
visitors enjoyed the tour from both inside and outside the bus.
