Mind blown in 2009 and brain completely rewired 2010. Future Art Car creator for 2011. My project will be a community based non profit organization that inspires local young school kids to get excited about alternative energy (wind/solar). The art car will be the tool used around the city at parades, schools and street festivals to educate and inspire fun and self expression. This will be a massive undertaking and will need plenty of help and support! If you're interested in giving back to your local community please support this project!
What do you want to get involved with? Volunteering, art, etc?
Building an art car based on alternative energy.

YAY! I have been thinking about the project and I've got some ideas...one of which is to use my car. It's a 2003 Pontiac Vibe, gets about 25mpg, has tons of interior space w/back seats that fold down (and are hard plastic). Look up the car specs online and let me know if you think it'd be a good option. Looking forward to working on this project!!!
