The Art Car Museum, Houston


Houston, Texas is often referred to as the 'Art Car Capital', with much kudos going to the Art Car Museum, which opened in 1998. The eye-catching chrome and scrap metal exterior was created by car artist David Best. Parked out the front was when we visited was Big Al's mosaic 'Psychic Car.'

Oooh how fun! I love classic cars, and I love art! What a nice combo! This kind of reminded me of the car collection at The House on the Rock in Spring Green, Wisconsin (which is, by far, my favorite place in the world!) Here is a picture of a tile car they have there: http://www.flickr.com/photos/manda888/5959229054/in/set-72157627212445574
