It’s TWO-CENT TUESDAY!
Introducing creativity that is low-cost and interesting. Today, Two-Cent Tuesday shares art noticed in the parking lot.
According to Wikipedia: An art car is a vehicle that has had its appearance modified as an act of personal artistic expression. Art cars are often driven and owned by their creators, who are sometimes referred to as “Cartists”.

Functional to block out the sun rays, and cute and identifiable once you return to a parking lot after time spent inside a store.
On a recent trip to a nearby town, I had my camera conveniently in my purse luckily to share this photo. Definitely creative, right?

Covered in over 2,700 cameras, and referred to as “the Panoramic Van.” The Panoramic Van was made to promote the film Automorphosis, which is about people who perform car art. Photo source from post from gearfuse.
