A friend of mine Greg Phelps, whose art car “That Car” has made it in previous years to Baltimore for the Annual Car Art Show, told me about the Kentucky Car Art Weekend, August 3-4. Held at various venues in Louisville, this is a Kentucky Museum of Art and Craft sponsored event that is considered, according to Greg, the Midwest’s most fabulous of art car shows. From the looks of the various happenings about town, he knows what he’s talking about.
There’s a Drive-in movie complete with concession stand, a parade, a gallery hop, an art car lecture, and the KY Art Car Hoedown for starters. If you want to create an art car yourself, there’s a miniature car art workshop. [See event schedule.]
If you go, look for Greg. He loves Louisville and can clue you into the hotspots. Also look for my Greg Phelps’s Louisville recommendations in the future. He sent me some great info.
