“An ArtCar is often a fantasy made into a reality. It is in itself a symbol of being free. . . it expresses the ideas, values, and dreams of an individual.”

—Harrod Blank, ArtCar artist, filmmaker and ArtCar Fest Co-Founder

“ArtCars are street–legal vehicles that have been permanently transformed into mobile sculptures. These aren’t parade– floats, they’re registered, insured automobiles that artists work on for years and exhibit to anyone who will look up.”

—Philo Northrup, ArtCar artist, and ArtCar Fest Co-Founder.
