Hubcap art for Route 66

Two years ago, when I was working at KY Museum of Art and Craft, they had a show of 101 pieces of art done on hubcaps. I had two pieces in the show, and it was a lot of fun. After that, I started collecting hubcaps, when I saw them by the side of the road. (One of my pieces is the pink chicken, second from the left on the bottom row.)

So when I decided to do another small piece for the Route 66 show, it seemed natural to use a hubcap for a canvas. I made a small quilt showing the historic round barn in Arcadia Oklahoma, and mounted it in the center of a hubcap... it was fun to do, and it turned out well. if you look closely, you will see that the windows open and close.
