WHY THE HOUSTON ART CAR EXPERIENCE?
The Orange Show Center for Visionary Art has been the producer of the world-famous Houston Art Car Parade for the past 34 years, growing it into one of the city's most beloved annual events.
Due to COVID-19 and restrictions placed on major public gatherings throughout the city, The Houston Art Car Parade has not graced the streets of Downtown Houston since 2019. And it's been a bummer.
Art Cars may not be unique to Houston, but Houston is the first city to publicly celebrate this form of art. Art Cars love Houstonians, and Houstonians love them right back.
The Houston Art Car Experience is a way for The Orange Show Center for Visionary Art to continue the annual Art Car tradition, but in a non-traditional format -- and also give you an opportunity to learn more and be inspired by 80 of the mind-boggling chrome creatures, hand-painted hoopties, whimsical whips, and one-of-a-kind mobile masterpieces that are hand crafted by anyone with a set of wheels and some truly massive creativity.
We hope that when you visit The Houston Art Car Experience - whether during the day or at night - you leave feeling a little more inspired to create your own work of art. After all, the mission of The Orange Show is to "celebrate the artist in everyone."
