A 2015 Toyota Prius c served as a traveling advertisement for the exhibition of seven artists and their work as it headed westward from Kansas City, MO from July 1–25, 2022. Each artist was asked to create work for a specific location in or on the car. Through the movement of the car across the country, window graphics allowed the artwork to be shared more widely. Car Show’s mission is to push against the inaccessibility of the art world by broadening viewership, championing artists and experimental work, and challenging the monopoly of the commercial gallery. The artworks were shown in a live exhibition in Kansas City, Missouri on June 30, 2022.
Artists and sites include:
