We wouldn’t call ourselves art enthusiasts by any means. But when it comes to automotive art, well, we’re all ears. And eyes.
Which is exactly why we hope to make it to the National Corvette Museum for the Car Part Art Exhibit held September 8, 2015 – January 8, 2016.
The NCM says each of the pieces on display will be made from at least 50 percent recycled car parts culled from all different makes and models, and each will range in size from small hubcaps to actual, full-size Corvettes.
There’s also a whole range of talent on display, as several schools from both Kentucky and Tennessee have contributed pieces, as well as Old Car City USA from Georgia. Even Michelin will show pieces from its ‘Inspired Tires’ competition.
Stop by the opening reception this Friday, September 18 from 3-5pm CT for the awards ceremony at 4pm and the chance to hang out with some of the participating artists. Tickets costs $10 for adults, $8 for seniors and $5 for students aged 6-16.
In the meantime, head on over to carpartart.org for a taste of what you can expect to see on display.
