Art Cars Invade Victoria

Art Cars of Houston

If you don’t know or have never seen an ‘art car’, you’re in for a treat this weekend thanks to the Nave Museum.

What’s better than a cool car tricked out with airbrushed images, knickknacks, statues, tile and more? A whole parade of them. This year marks the third annual art car exhibition, Art Car Central, which will once again be curated by Ann Harithas, founder of the Art Car Museum in Houston. For the first time, you’ll be able to view these eclectic autos as they roll through downtown Victoria on their way to the Nave Museum.

“It’s going to be a blast with all those crazy cars. The art show inside the museum is going to be the highlight,” said Maggie Kuykendall, media contact for the Nave told the Victoria Advocate.

The parade will begin Saturday at 11:30 a.m. on Main Street and end at the Nave Museum for the Art Car Central show. Saturday’s admission is free with more than 40 award-winning art cars and low-riders to check out. A kid’s craft area and food and beverage vendors will be on site. Inside the Nave, David Best’s artwork, Prayer Wheels, will be on display Saturday through July 1. Best is an internationally known sculptor and art car artist. “This particular batch of work was kind of inspired because of the art car parade that’s going to be in Victoria. So, I thought I would kind of keep it more in an automobile related imagery,” Best said. But his art became inspired by India after he spent time there. Best used elegant backgrounds with the somewhat humorous imagery of tires, oil cans, and pin-up models. Best considers this collection to be much more light-hearted than his earlier work. “This became really a fun project,” he said.
