I'm actually charmed and honored to have several faithful readers in the Atlanta area, (hello, you little peaches!) and they are always up to something fascinating. This time, it's . . . ArtcarPalooza!

Think "Beadazzler" meets Ford Motor Company. Wild, man.

Gulf Coast artist, Paulette Perlman, pictured at the top of this page, owns two art cars and says all the locals in Panama City know her by her groovy transportation,"De Art Coupe", which will whisk her up to Georgia. Organizers hope to grow ArtcarPalooza to be as large as the Houston Texas Artcar event that annually draws over 300,000 spectators!
Using an automobile as canvas is the ultimate in contemporary folkart, and with all the creative souls we have in Fairhope, I'm surprised, no SHOCKED, we don't have an artcar or two in town! Could this be a new class offering for the Eastern Shore Art Center?
