What is an art car or art bike?
This functional form of art is basically a kinetic sculpture aka moveable art on wheels. It can be a car, a bike, or a completely new contraption. An art car can run on fossil fuel as well as greener resources like solar, electric, or even human locomotion. Art cars are created as a way to address social issues, instill community pride, push the limits of technology as well as artistic self-expression.
