ArtCenter’s annual Car Classic features unique, custom, specially built vehicles that will include early coachbuilt cars, custom hot rods and motorcycles, concept cars, bespoke supercars, and specially modified vehicles from all eras—classic to modern to concept.
All attending are engulfed by an Alice In Wonderland experience. The endless stream of colors, sounds, smells, and blazingly fast racing coupled with a hint of danger is like a motorsports version of a Timothy Leary acid trip.
By no means is it easy to separate one form of creativity from another. Every form feeds off of another, absorbing new ideas and giving birth to others. Certainly, the NAMM Show is as fine an example as one can find anywhere.
Cars are often used by photographers as props, as shiny and colorful structural objects for their subjects to play and pose with. The Cars and Stars exhibit features some of fine art photography’s consummate practitioners, documenting the biggest icons in music alongside some sweet rides.
