Art Car Weekend - Part 1

The Ky Art Car Weekend was held in Louisville on August 1-3. Some really creative altered art cars were on display and they participated in a parade on Saturday. Here are some pictures that I took when they were parked in a church lot. I'll post a few more pictures tomorrow. They were so great and unique, it's hard to choose just a few!

This shows the detail on one of the vans. If you double click the picture, you can see there are buttons, shells, McDonald toys, barbie parts, rulers, beads, silk flowers, etc.

I liked the swirled paint job on this car. And the fins!

Close up of the hood of one of the cars. This is kinda creepy in a dismembered doll head kind of way. I am wondering how they wash their cars with all this stuff on them!

There is a very cool hotel in town called the 21C Museum Hotel. It has very interesting art that grabs your attention and gets you talking. This car was commissioned by the hotel. The miata is covered in pieces of mirror. The red penguin is from the hotel. You will find them all over the hotel, inside and out. Rumor has it, they may even put one in your room or in your bed for laughs. The hotel also has an older limo completely covered in flat red marbles. I did not see it on display at the show this weekend, but I've seen it parked in front of the hotel. Unfortunately, I did not have my camera that day!

More pictures to come!
