Great Cars are Great Art!



Marco Island Center for the Arts will present the 5th annual “Cars as Art” on Saturday, March 31, 2018 from 10 AM – 4 PM, featuring pre- 1978 unmodified antique and classic automobiles. Cars will be judged by art professionals, with awards for Judges’ Choice and People’s Choice.

Although the purpose of any car is to be functional, many of its design elements include artistic touches. At one time the car was designed mainly for aesthetic purposes. Now, chrome and emblems are the car’s visual art, illustrating the personal flair of the designer.

“Cars as Art” is like bright headlights, shining its light on a different type of ART. Many of the cars are complete masterpieces in every aspect of visual design and sculpture.

Sponsors are Clair and Jack Keery, and Keith Pershing at Island Automotive.

Car entry is $25. Registration forms are available at the Art Center or marcoislandart.org/event/cars-as-art/. For questions contact Keith Pershing at 239-394-1889 or carshows@islandautomotiveinc.com.
