Transcript Riding in Style Houston's Art Car scene brings unique flavor to the highways Mixed with the pick-up trucks and sport-utility vehicles on Houston's roads are a few cars that are hard to categorize, but always manage to make even the worst traffic jam a little more bearable. Houston is home to one of the biggest Art Car movements in the country, with about 50 to 60 art cars on the road daily and more that are brought out for special occasions. On any given day, a vehicle shaped like a sunflower or a rat, or a car covered in yarn or singing lobsters, could cruise past. No one knows exactly who made the first art car, though many stake claims, but the first Art Car parade in Houston was in 1988 and featured about 40 vehicles. The most recent parade, in May 2004, drew about 250,000 people to downtown Houston and featured more than 270 vehicles from across the country, making it the biggest parade yet. Also, this year marked the first time a Houston mayor participated in the parade: Mayor Bill White rode in a red, white and blue convertible. "Every car artist wants to make their way down to Houston for the parade," said Bryan Taylor, president of the Houston Art Car Klub and owner of the Santa Car. He said that, though about 50 other cities have art car parades, Houston's is by far the biggest. Houston is also home to the Art Car Museum and one of the only actual Art Car clubs, and many of the artists work with children or promote charitable causes through the Art Cars. Next to the parade, World Art Car Day is the other big celebration for Art Car owners, and all owners are encouraged to exhibit their cars "wherever they are," Taylor said. But it's not just about the events, Taylor said — it's about making your mark on your car, a medium that, unlike more orthodox types of art, has no commercial value. "Car art is free the minute you leave your drive," Taylor said — and that's part of what makes it so unique.
