The Art in Motion project unites the creativity of Seattle artists, the philanthropy of Washington’s new car and truck dealers, and the generosity of Pacific Place-Seattle and other local businesses to benefit local charities that serve children and families.
Often cited as hallmarks of man’s innovation, the wheeled vehicle and rubber pneumatic tire have had a profound effect on the economy and society worldwide; broadening trade networks, expanding travel and tying communities together.
Art in Motion inspired 9 popular, local artists to unleash their imagination and talent to create one of-a-kind works of art that give new meaning and life to these age-old inventions; ranging from a vintage Ford Model T wood spoke wheel hand-detailed with copper paint, to a hubcap transformed into a blossoming flower, to a burning tire made of glass.
All artwork will be auctioned for charity during the Seattle International Auto Show and on display at the show from November 9-12 at CenturyLink Field Event Center.
