Things that Roll: History of the Decorated Car

ArtCar Fest in Santa

Exhibited from September 15 2007 – November 25 2007

ArtCar Fest is coming to Santa Cruz! At the intersection of Front Street, Cooper Street and throughout the Pacific Garden Mall, 100 ArtCar artists will display their creations and will be available to discuss their methodology with members of our community. There will be live music and ArtCar Fest’s Famous Fashion Show!

ArtCars Fest was founded by Philo Northrup and Harrod Blank (a Santa Cruz native) in 1997. Included in the exhibition will be ArtCar photos by Blank, as well as artifacts from ArtCar Fest’s decade-long history such as trophy sculptures and the last remaining piece of Northrup’s 3rd ArtCar, the “Bus for Gus.”
