Last weekend my family went to Cartopia, an art car show in Berwyn, Illinois. Yes, the same Berwyn that the Son of Svengoolie talks about. In fact he was the parade marshall at the show.
The location was perfect. Cermak Plaza is rather run down but it hosts some of the most amazing art installations.
The show combined kitsch, found objects and fun. All of the things we love most in our art. Some cars were amazing and others were a little cute for my taste, but still great contributions.
To see the cars from the show, check out this Flickr group.
