The event starts with a party at the American Legion Hall in Fairplay, where the creative alliance will auction off an art car that’s been decorated by several artists, “Over the past few years we have had different artist painting on it, putting bling on it beads whatever they want,” Lukacs said. ”The lucky winner can drive it home, I guarantee you won’t find another like it.”
