Toothman Ford will shine a very bright spotlight on local students Saturday, November 8, as we host Artomobiles, a signature Ford-themed art show.
We’re keeping art alive as part of a long-standing commitment to supporting and uplifting area youth through a variety of local projects and events. Through Artomobiles, we’re hoping to foster creative minds as they examine the century-long impact of the Ford Motor Company through artistic interpretation.
“Ford is iconic and art is certainly timeless,” remarked JR Toothman, owner. “We’re excited to see talented local artists depict that relationship through mixed-media,” he later stated.
Artomobiles participants are advised to follow and closely adhere to the guidelines below as they develop art that expresses the rich history and promising future of the Ford Motor Company.
