The degree of transformation is a personal choice made up from the imagination, skills and resources of the ArtCar artist. Some artists alter their creation with materials of a temporary nature. Others treat their ArtCar as a canvas and visually alter their creation with paint or change the original structure of the car body to create a moving sculpture.
Want to be an ArtCar Artist? Anyone can, including welders or mechanics. Cutting torch or krazy glue, there are no rules to how you make an ArtCar. Many artists have committed to participate, with ArtCars coming from many parts of the United States to join Tulsa area ArtCar and ArtBike artists.
In conjunction with Tulsa ArtCar Weekend, Living Arts will present two Art Box Car Workshops, followed by a parade and awards at the Blue Dome Arts Festival on SDaturday, May 6th. Both workshops are FREE and open to the public. All supplies and materials will be provided. The first will be at the Philbrook Musuem of Art during Second Saturday, May 9th, 10am-4pm. The next workshop will be the next day, Sunday, May 10th, 12pm-4pm. The sky’s the limit with your creativity and ideas for your ride!
Volunteers are needed and always appreciated. If you would like to volunteer, for these workshops, or any other ArtCar event, please contact Living Arts at 918-585-1234.
