We've changed our name but not our game! ArtX (formerly Art Cars of Houston), an artist-driven 501(C)3 non-profit, is dedicated to fostering creativity through workshops, build projects and showcase events.
ArtX launched with a bang in 2009 producing GlowOrama, a community-wide juried illuminated event showcasing art cars in a uniquely Houston way - brilliantly lighted and blowing fire! Fire balls, glowing art cars and sparkling performers rollicked through Discovery Green to join the lights bouncing off the walls of the George R. Brown Convention Center creating a spectacular explosion of light and sound. These advanced art cars fuse technology and art, often featuring kinetic parts, exotic lighting and even pyrotechnics. ArtX has since expanded to include other technologically driven artistry and performances and has worked with governmental agencies to garner approval for these performances including the FireCracker Hat Dances.
Following the success of GlowOrama, ArtX has been invited to illuminate many events, both public and private. Fire Dancers and LED spinners dancing amongst the Illuminated art cars and flaming sculptures makes quite a show! Our artists can also create unique flame effects or sculptures designed specifically for your venue. These artists can illuminate any event - from flames to high tech LED!
In conjunction with these new community events, ArtX launched workshops to teach the advanced aspects of art vehicle building to include lighting and special effects. In 2014, ArtX expanded its offerings with group build projects and workshop series' to help you complete your mobile art projects under expert artist guidance. You can learn metal arts, fabrication, flow arts and costuming from experienced artists and performers. 2015 introduces an ArtX membership that includes discounts to workshops and events and access to studio space to facilitate build projects.
Don't miss out on a thing - join ArtX now and expand YOUR creativity!
