Durham Art Car ParadeThe Indepedant Art Car

We are proud to announce the Triangle's first annual art car event: the Durham Fourth of July Art Car Parade, July 4, 2005. Sponsored by Durham Central Park. Bring your art car!

Youth projects: An art car is a great way for art and/or shop classes to learn about recycling, create art, build technical skills, and have fun. If you are a teacher interested in creating a youth art car for the parade, contact us for more information on how to get started.

What is an Art Car?

Mommy Car by Deb AllenAn Art Car Is... a vehicle that has been decorated, embellished, or modified by painting, gluing, welding or other decorative techniques. It can be temporary or permanent.

Art Car by Toby GalinkinAn Art Car Is... a way to express yourself, thumb your nose at car culture, have fun with your commute, and make people smile every day.

An Art Car Is... whatever you want it to be!

Car companies tell us that the car we drive expresses who we are. They're right, if it's an art car!
