Sometimes Pan don't like to think to hard. Here are some photos from the 2011 Art Car Parade, which I saw with my sister and her family and some friends and their families (it's kind of a family event). Minimal commentary on the photos--the sun baked my ability to write stuff right out of my head today. If you created one of these cars, please drop me a line and I will make sure you get credit!
One of many Scrap Daddy cars in the show--he always blows the competition away.
A knit cozy for this VW bug.
Loved this woolly mammoth.
Very clever construction kept the saw-blade spinning in this three-wheeled death-mobile. (Bike by Smitty Regula.)
I just thought the design on this bike was brilliant and beautiful.
The 1960s era Bat-mobile (or a replica) was in the show, but I liked this one much better.
They put every modern art cliche they could on this one. A "Calder" mobile, soft watches, a Campbell's Soup can, and...
...a Giacometti (I'm not sure what they are towing).
This one was more elegant and kept its count of art cliches to one.
A lovely Alice in Wonderland tableaux.
The "Three-wheeled death mobile" (art bike) is Smitty Regula. He is also the creator of the "Hen-a-Tron" a.k.a. chicken truck you may have seen at the parade as well.ReplyDelete
