12:00-5:00 p.m.

The Tyler Museum of Art is getting in gear once again with the call for entries on its Juried “Cars Are Art” 2014 Competition.

Click here for the Cars Are Art 2014 registration form.

Vehicle owners may enter their cars in one of eight competition categories: Pre-1940s, 1940s, 1950s, 1960s, 1970s, 1980s, 1990s, and Post-2000. Cars will be judged on overall presentation and aesthetics, not originality or modifications (all doors and engine hoods will be closed). A jury of art professionals will perform the competition judging.

The first-place winner in each category will receive an artistically crafted trophy. The entry chosen as the “Cars Are Art” 2014 Best of Show winner will receive the Grand Prize, which includes a unique trophy and special display in the TMA lobby for two weeks following the competition.

Registration deadline is Aug. 31. Entry fee is $100 per vehicle with proceeds benefiting the TMA; price includes lunch and a “Blue-plate Special” party following the awards presentation from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m.

Best of Show Sponsor for Cars Are Art 2014 is Hibbs-Hallmark & Company. Tents Sponsor is James E. Walker. For information, contact special events coordinator Caleb Bell at (903) 595-1001, ext. 208 or cbell@tylermuseum.org.
