Houston Art Car Parade – A Celebration of Individuality
Photographs by Stephen Hartshorne
|The Houston Art Car Parade was started by The Orange Show Center for Visionary Art, an organization founded by Houston Postman Jeff McKissack to make art more accessible to the community. The first parade in 1988, with 40 cars, drew about 2,000 people.|
Now there are more than 250 cars in the parade and it draws about 250,000 people from all over the world and forms the nucleus of The Orange Show’s Art Car Weekend, known as “Houston’s best party.”
