Minnesota Tour: Art Car Parade and World's Largest Things


July 3 - 8, 2003

Minnesota – the Land of 10,000 Lakes, and a Whole Lotta World’s Largest Things. As some of you may already know, Minnesota awash in monumental architecture. Maybe it’s the winters, maybe it’s the mosquitoes, but when you look at a map of world’s largest, there’s a shotgun blast that concentrates in the upper Midwest.

July 3rd : Intermedia Arts Art Car Cabaret on Wheels
An evening of art car related performances and lectures – along with an amazing cast of characters including Diesel, Patron Saint of Hubcaps, The Unruly Julies creating an art car in 5 easy steps, and a 3D Art Car slide show, I talked about The Drive to Embellish: Combating Genericana.

July 4th: Greenway Parade of Arts Art Car Parade – a whole cast of cars parading through downtown Minneapolis – it’s always a wonderful sight. Their 9th annual event, there were around 60 entrants, including the Mayor and Minnesota’s US Senator.

July 6th – 8th: Mini Minnesota Tour of World’s Largest Things
