    THE ART OF CARS

    Hollywood Gallery
    March 29-November 2, 2008



    Route 66 ends this year at Fairfax and Wilshire with the launch of a special exhibition “The Art of Cars,” the first-ever creative collaboration between Pixar Animation Studios and the Petersen Automotive Museum. “The Art of Cars” showcases the artistic process behind the creation of the animated feature film Cars. The exhibit will run from March 29 through November 2, 2008.


    Inspired by a family trip and his overwhelming love for cars, Director John Lasseter’s enthusiasm seeped into every detail of the movie. Lasseter and his team enlisted some of today’s most famous automotive personalities to give life to the vehicles, including Paul Newman (Doc Hudson) and racing legends Mario Andretti (as himself), Richard Petty (The King), Michael Schumacher (Ferrari), even Darrell Waltrip and Bob Costas (announcers). “The Art of Cars” exhibit guides fans through the process of creating the films’ many characters, personalities, and locations.
    “The Art of Cars” exhibit includes more than 60 watercolor and pastel drawings, pencil and marker sketches, and a variety of three-dimensional pieces, including:
    • Life-size replicas of the movie’s main characters: Lightning McQueen and his tow-truck buddy, Mater
    • Three-dimensional maquettes of Mater, Doc Hudson, Sally, and The King, which were used as reference to guide animators when drawing their characters
    • Illustrated character studies that illuminate the development of supporting characters Flo and Ramone, Luigi and Guido, Fillmore, Sarge, DJ, and Wingo
    • Digital, pencil, and marker sketches interpreting the cars’ eyes, gestures, and expressions
    • Pencil and marker drawings of the fictional Los Angeles Motor Speedway, Sally’s “Cozy Cone” motel, and iconic diners, curio shops, and service stations based on actual locations along “The Mother Road”
    • Pastels, watercolors, and pencil sketches of such scenic vistas as Ornament Valley, Cadillac Range, and Radiator Cap Butte, based on familiar landmarks as Arizona’s Monument Valley rock formations and the Cadillac Ranch in Amarillo, Texas
