ArtCar Open Car for Artists and the Curious 5-17-14

Painted Panel by Midge Hyde
Are you interested in art, protest art, and/or art painted right on a car? Are you an artist with something to say? What if you just want to see what a rolling protest of General Motors looks like?

If you are any of these people -- or anybody else -- you are invited to a free ArtCar Open Car Sat. May 17 from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.  The ArtCar Open Car is the best way to learn how and why we're protesting General Motors' late recall of a certain 2007 Chevrolet Cobalt.  Partial answer: We're turning a regular Chevy Cobalt into the DeathTrapArtCar!

Lizzie claims her door.
The ArtCar Open Car will feature the partially transformed car and the artists who are making protest art on it. Some of them might be painting right on the car!  The ArtCar Open Car takes place at On The Edge Art Gallery, 7317 El Cajon Boulevard, La Mesa, CA 91942. -see the map

Come take a look at the DeathTrapArtCar and, if you are an artist, claim a panel on which to paint your protest!  The photo below shows who's claimed what, and what's still available. Please join us at On The Edge Art Gallery, on May 17th from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. We look forward to meeting you!

Here's what's available:

The gallery is located at 7317 El Cajon Blvd. (on the edge of San Diego and La Mesa). For more information, email car@deathtrapartcar.com.

See you there!

Call to artists from a friend of OnTheEdge

Call to artists: send message to GM on car

Attention San Diego visual artists:
Is your art going places? Have you ever wanted your art to move at 65 miles per hour? What would you say to thousands of commuters every day?

If you have answers to these questions, DeathTrapArtCar wants you.

The Death Trap Art Car began life as a 2007 Chevrolet Cobalt, with a faulty ignition switch.  It was sold to a family who returned it and resold to someone who was shocked to learn that he'd been driving a deathtrap since 2010.  The news came in the form of a recall letter from General Motors.

The letter from General Motors said that the car would be fixed.  But not yet.  While automobile owners wait for parts, cars with the same faulty ignition were responsible for 13 deaths (said General Motors, but others in the automobile business put that number at closer to 300).

300+ preventable deaths and the car cannot be fixed for lack of parts.  Instead, GM wants owners to reduce the number of keys on their rings, which they say will solve the problem. Until the faulty ignition can be replaced.  Then, ostensibly, the car will be fixed better?

In the meantime the 2007 Cobalt has $0 resale value and might just turn itself (and the airbags) off while driving.  The owner of this car cannot afford a new one and really thinks people should be warned that his car might just stop working and start killing people.

That's where you come in.

Because the car is worthless -- and already Caution Tape Yellow -- it is the perfect venue for sternly worded, though poignantly beautiful, messages to General Motors about their responsibility to faultless owners, passengers and commuters. The DeathTrapArtCar.com website was designed to attract artists to the project, document their progress, and showcase the art via videos and pictures of the DeathTrapArtCar as it commutes, vacations and visits large gatherings, events and functions.

If you have a masterpiece that you'd like to paint on (or otherwise permanently attach to) the fastest art gallery in the world, DeathTrapArtCar might be just for you. If you are interested, please email us with your idea and how you'd like to execute it.

Artists will be chosen soon.  Thanks and here's that email address!
