TULSA ARTCAR WEEKEND XII


Living Arts, Tulsa’s arts organization dedicated to presenting contemporary non-traditional art to the public, is proud to announce Tulsa ArtCar Weekend XII. The dates for the event are May 19-21, 2016, with many different venues for the public to enjoy these unique vehicles that function both as roadworthy cars and as exciting artistic creations. For those unfamiliar, ArtCars typically involve transforming any type of vehicle, motorcycle, scooter or bicycle into a personalized creation of art. Many artists have committed to participate, with ArtCars coming from many parts of the United States to join Tulsa area ArtCar and ArtBike artists.
