Cadillac Ranch..

We had been too long of hours to make our way to my Dad’s place so we decided to take it a road side attraction. Just off I-40, right on the frontage road in Amarillo, TX is a public art display. We figured that this would satisfy my daughter’s request to stop at some crazy road side attraction. It was actually pretty cool.

Created in 1974 by Chip Lord, Hudson Marquez and Doug Michels, artists of part of a group called Ant Farm. The display is made from old Cadillacs that were buried have way in the dirt and they are painted different colors. Over time they have been painted with spray paint from visitors from the world around. While we were there, we heard several languages and watched as others put unique tags on the car and joined in to do it too. I’m sure that in the next several weeks our tags will be covered by other visitors, but it was pretty cool. How many places can you legally graffiti a piece of art? What an experience for kids visiting. Here kid take this spray paint and knock yourself out… yep, kind of cool. You can bring your own paint or pick up a can left by others. Be an angel and take an empty can away with you to dispose of properly…
