Tulsa ArtCar Weekend
Living Arts, Tulsa’s arts organization dedicated to presenting contemporary non-traditional art to the public, is proud to announce Tulsa ArtCar Weekend XIII. The dates for the event are May 18-20, 2017, with many different venues for the public to enjoy these unique vehicles that function both as roadworthy cars and as exciting artistic creations. For those unfamiliar, ArtCars typically involve transforming any type of vehicle, motorcycle, scooter or bicycle into a personalized creation of art. Many artists have committed to participate, with ArtCars coming from many parts of the United States to join Tulsa area ArtCar and ArtBike artists.
The main ArtCars travel throughout Tulsa to schools and hospitals on community tours. They’re also shown around the downtown area during Mayfest and the Blue Dome Festival, with the grand finale being Burning Car, a bonfire celebration held just outside of Tulsa on the last day of ArtCar Weekend featuring the artists, poi fire spinners, and firecracker hat dancers.
