Art on Wheels" is based on an idea to take art "out of the box". Art has, for the most part, been thought of as watercolors or canvas artwork. We wanted the public to see art from our point of view. Graphic designs on a motorcycle, woodworking, pottery, ironwork, jewelry, all of these items conceived and then created are hand crafted by some of our local artists in this area and surrounding communities. We welcome all forms of art, even skin art or tattooing. This show is an opportunity to combine several diverse groups of people, of all ages, together. Our first efforts were greeted with overwhelming community support and were attended by well over one thousand spectators, sponsors, exhibitors and entrants. The first event's proceeds were donated to a local children's charity Christmas program and this past year "Art on Wheels" donated all proceeds from the event to help sponsor two existing programs, "The Whistle Stop" and "Bikers Against Child Abuse" (B.A.C.A.). These are privately funded programs whose purpose is to help children. "The Whistle Stop" is housed in a convenient location to facilitate assisting families when children have been abused or are involved in disputed custody battles for various reasons. By providing a monitored and law enforcement secure facility, visitations can occur in an environment where the children feel safe and cannot be intimidated by persons or situations. "B.A.C.A." is an international volunteer group of motorcycles riders who have made it their mission to work with law enforcement and to become a "family unit" to a child who has been abused. The 2010 "Art on Wheels" event will donate all proceeds to the Special Olympics and again "Bikers Against Child Abuse" (B.A.C.A.).
