This is the fourth, and last, installment covering the Art Car Parade that my husband and I went to on Saturday, April 16, 2016. This post will cover the Grand Opening of the new Victoria Five Points Museum of Contemporary Art which opened on the same day as the Art Car Parade. The museum will house and display some of the vehicles all year round when they are not been shown at various locations.

This concludes the four part series covering the Art Car Parade and the new Museum of Contemporary Art. I sincerely hope that you have enjoyed my photos of these cars. Even if you are not really a “car person,” the sheer artistry of their custom paint jobs is still beautiful to look at and appreciate!

As promised in my Art Car Parade (Part 2) post, this is the third installment covering the Art Car Parade that my husband and I went to on Saturday, April 16, 2016. Here are some more vehicles that we saw in the parade. However, these vehicles are different from the ones shown in the two previous posts. These entries are classic vintage, as well as low riders and modified cars.

Since I have no real information on the vehicles and I am not good at identifying makes and models of cars, I will just let the photos speak for themselves. Some of these vehicles have some very detailed custom artwork done on them! I hope that you enjoy the photos!


There will be one more post in this series. It will cover the Museum of Contemporary Art which houses some of these vehicles when they are not out on the road being shown at area events.

If you haven’t already seen them, be sure to check out Art Car Parade (Part 1) and Art Car Parade (Part 2), as well as Art Car Parade (Part 4) in this series.

On Saturday, April 16, 2016, my husband and I had the opportunity to go see our first Art Car Parade. We had heard about them and seen snippets of them on the news and in the newspapers but had never had a chance to attend one for ourselves.

There was quite a variety of Art Cars and Low Riders in the parade. I figured it is just best to let the art of each vehicle to speak for itself. Here are some of the Art Car entrants:
