"Creative Cars" Project

Saturday, August 20th, dozens of children and adults alike joined the Pontiac Arts Commission to “Jazz up a Jalopy” by painting 3 jalopy cars donated for the event by the good folks at Schram U-Pull and Save Auto Parts, and Adlers Towing.

The event was created to bring attention to the Pontiac Arts and Culture scene...from events, exhibits, education, workshops, artists and venues throughout our City. It was truly crazy fun, and the Pontiac Arts Commission hopes to host this event again in the future.
