Extremely EXCITING news about Art Car Weekend 2011

The Orange Show Center for Visionary Art is thrilled to share some very exciting news. We have the unique opportunity to showcase the 2011 Houston Art Car Parade not only to our local supporters, but to a new group of art enthusiasts from more than 50 countries.

The 2011 Houston Art Car Parade will be on Sunday, May 22, 2011. This one-time move gives all Art Car Artists and regional attendees the distinguished opportunity to be a part of the opening event of the American Association of Museums (AAM) Annual Meeting and Museum Expo, which is being hosted in Houston for the first time.

The AAM Annual Meeting and Museum Expo will bring 5,000-6,000 of our regional, national, and international museum curators, practitioners and visionaries from more than 50 countries.  The AAMs main mission is to make a “unique contribution to the public by collecting, preserving, and interpreting the things of this world,” a mission we feel perfectly parallels our desire to “celebrate the artist in everyone.”

Having the Art Car Parade kick off this expo of global art enthusiasts will give each artist the chance to reveal their art to an even larger audience of the world at one great event. Art Cars are guaranteed to be one of the most exceptional public art form displays the AAM has ever encountered.

After the 2011 Parade rolls through Houston and the AAM Annual Meeting and Museum Expo concludes, we will continue our tradition of having the Parade on the second Saturday of May.

The Orange Show Center for Visionary Art’s board of directors and staff thank those of you who have shared your input and ideas to help make the Art Car Parade bigger and better than ever.

For your reference, the Art Car Week Calendar will be as follows:
·         Friday, May 20 – Art Car Ball
·         Saturday, May 21 – Sneak Peek / Illuminated Cruise (by HACK)
·         Sunday, May 22 – Art Car Parade

We look forward to having you join us as we showcase Houston as the Art Car Capital of the World on May 22.  Thank you so much for more than 24 years of support and unique art!
