Party Car is a vinyl wrapping of the streetcar meant to surprise and delight the public with bright, energetic, colorful designs that incite a sense of joy and playfulness. It is a whimsical nod to Kansas City’s artistic spirit and individual character. The artist created an installation using party materials (confetti, glitter, tissue paper, ribbons, and others), photographed the installation, then manipulated the design to create “Party Car.”
