As subtle as a flying brick.

Four miles of yarn on a car

Timothy Klein gets art. I mean, he really gets it. And he likes cars. So when he decided to become an artist, he covered a 1967 Chrysler Imperial Crown luxury car with yarn. Correct, yarn. Then, Tim didn’t just show his car off to the local cruzers at the Dairy Queen. No. Tim took it to Artscape at the American Visionary Art Museum in Baltimore in 2002, where he met other famous automotive artists like Harrod Blank and Chris Hubbard. He took it to the Outsider Art Fair in New York in 2003. Wherever he takes the Yarn Car, he documents the trips on his site.
He got featured in Reader’s Digest and “made Diane Sawyer giggle”. Tim will be in Houston on May 10 for the 2008 Art Car Parade. Don’t miss the yarn phone in the car.
