Art Car Apostle Rebecca Bass Spreads the Word to Chattanooga: Parade Set for April 2012

by Bill Davenport October 23, 2011

Houston art car apostle Rebecca Bass is in Chattanooga, Tennessee this weekend, leading a workshop for educators, artists and the curious as they transform a 1974 Toyota Chinook Camper into the city’s first official art car. Her visit is sponsored by Art 120, a Chattanooga nonprofit that is organizing  the city’s first Art Car Weekend in April 2012.

Under the slogan “Art Cars Mean Business” the org highlights the economic advantages of hosting an art car event, and has been collecting “uniquely Chattanooga items” to incorporate into the deeply-encrusted design, typical of the collaborative, award winning cars Bass and her students at Edison Middle School have been producing for years in Houston.
