Art car artist and documenter Harrod Blank has just announced the birth of Art Car World, a new non-profit art car museum located Douglas, Arizona. It is currently home to 10 art cars and will be adding many more in the coming years. In the fall of 2007 it will be open by personal appointment, with plans to officially open to the public in 2009.
Art Car World is located in historic downtown Douglas, Arizona, minutes from the Mexican border (see pictures here.) Currently under construction, Art Car World will feature a permanent collection of 42 popular Art Cars, with more on rotating exhibition. The museum will be bilingual and international festivities are in the works! Art Car World will produce special Art Car events throughout the year, culminating in the magnificent ArtCar Fest.
Art Car World is currently in fundraising mode, so if you would like to help with the development and growth of this unique museum, please consider making a donation.
