Hubcaps x101

I promised to post a picture of the artistic hubcaps, and here are some of them. The curator of the show was hoping to get 100 to display, because this was the tenth year of the Art Car Event at the Kentucky Museum of Art and Craft.

She actually got 101, and they are displayed at the entrance to the Museum, at 715 West Main Street in Louisville. Although I have seen some of them as the artists brought them in, I have not actually seen the display yet.

I will see them tomorrow when I go in to volunteer. I love the variety, and it is always fun to see how different artists express their talent and ideas when given a theme or starting point. You can see my bird near the lower left, and my Sunbonnet Sue in the third row up. One of my faves is the banjo, but there are lots of good ones...

In addition to the hubcaps, there is a new show there, to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Kentucky Guild of Artists and Craftsmen. The Museum is open M-F from 10 - 5, and Saturday 11-5.
