Wild, Wondrous Wheels


It%26rsquo;s our absolute favorite event of the year %26mdash; Art Car Day, and now it moves to a new date, Sunday, May 22, to greet thousands of international museum types who come to town for the American Association of Museums convention. Secure your place now for prime seating (complete with adult beverages, endless bites, and fare for the tykes) at the VIPit Party, chaired by the inimitable Don Mafrige Jr. and yours truly, with Grand Marshal the gracious Lynn Wyatt, on the grounds of the Heritage Society. Get ready to celebrate the 24th year of the world%26rsquo;s most extraordinary convergence of art cars, while benefitting its organizer, the renowned Orange Show Center for Visionary Art. We%26rsquo;ll see you parade-side. And watch out for Antti Rahko%26rsquo;s monstrous Finnjet (above), a majestic, ongoing chrome creation that reportedly was once a pair of Mercedes station wagons (VIPit tickets from $125 per person, 713.926.6368; orangeshow.org). For complete weekend lineup, including the return of the Art Car Ball at the Orange Show on Friday, May 20, and the Sneak Peek Party the following evening at Discovery Green, navigate to orangeshow.org.
