ART CAR PROJECT
As part of the 2017 Bethlehem ArtWalk schedule of events, 42 Maple Contemporary Art Center is spearheading the Art Car Project. Open to artists, car enthusiasts, gear heads, hobbyists, and even the curious, this project will cumulate in a parade on ArtWalk Day as part of the larger Bethlehem ArtWalk Parade on August 12, 2017.
Interested parties are invited to create their very own art car. This can be the temporary decoration of a vehicle or a more permanent alteration project.
WHAT IS AN ART CAR?
Art Cars or art mobiles usually begin their lives as an older or used vehicle (car, truck, van, bus, jeep, golf cart, etc.). The owner of the car decides they want to alter their automobile, not necessarily converting what’s under the hood but instead transforming the exterior/ interior of the car. To what degree and how this transformation is made is entirely up to the imagination, skills, and resources of the car owner.
1. Vehicle must be street legal.
2. Vehicle must be driveable and able to power itself.
