ART CAR PROJECT
As part of the 2017 Bethlehem ArtWalk schedule of events, 42 Maple is spearheading the Art Car Project. Open to artists, car enthusiasts, gear heads, hobbyists, and even the curious, this project will cumulate in a parade on ArtWalk Day.
Interested parties are invited to create their very own art car. This can be the temporary decoration of a vehicle or a more permanent alteration project.
WHAT IS AN ART CAR
Art Cars or art mobiles usually begin their lives as an older or used vehicle (car, truck, van, bus, jeep, golf cart, etc.). The owner of the car decides they want to alter their automobile, not necessarily converting what’s under the hood but instead transforming the exterior/ interior of the car. To what degree and how this transformation is made is entirely up to the imagination, skills, and resources of the car owner.
The art car parade will be part of the larger Bethlehem ArtWalk Parade, scheduled for Saturday, August 12, 2017. Parade route will be along Route 302 Main Street, load in times and locations will be announced soon. This parade is FREE.
