Even though there is no scheduled, large-scale Art Car Parade this year, that doesn't mean that the local Art Cars aren't cruising around this summer. It's probably for the best, since their usual Lyndale-centric route is in the midst of construction. This Saturday marks another one of the Art Cars' special events. The eye-catching vehicles begin with a cruise around Lake of the Isles, so bring a blanket and some picnic snacks and enjoy the show. After the ride cars will meet back at Intermedia Arts, where they will be on display for those who want to take a look up close. At dusk, the Intermedia Arts lot becomes an Art Car drive-in, and guests can enjoy an outdoor screening of Wild Wheels, Harrod Blank's 1992 documentary about people who drive cars that make artistic statements, and how the automobile you drive can be a true statement of individuality.
Last year Rhena Tantisunthorn interviewed Harrod Blank. You can check out the interview here.
