very first ArtoCade
sure got off to a good start. This celebration of art cars — "if you can't drive it, it's a float" — included one covered in eyes, another that looked as if it was pulled from Neptune's treasure chest, one shaped like a phone, and another encased in an inflatable hog suit.
All of these art cars will return for 2014, and then some, for the second iteration of ArtoCade
, happening this weekend. The main event, the parade, takes place Saturday at noon, but festivities kick off Friday night with auto-themed art shows at local galleries and a party where you can meet the "cartists." Saturday night offers the Cardango, a "dance/gala/circus/party" for adults and Sunday sobers up with a send-off breakfast.
