Kitty Art Cars

Post by JuneCat » Thu May 09, 2013 1:06 pm

Hey everyone,

My camp is bringing an art piece to the playa this year, Catmandu. Its a 3-story tall carpeted cat tree with a climbing wall, hammocks, and 3 shaded pods to lounge in.

We're aiming to do a Cat-vergence party at sunset early in the week to bring together all the playa kitties. We've started contacting other cat camps and art cars, but I cant find the project leads for some of our favorites. Does anyone know where I can find info for these?:

-Cheshire cat http://www.loupiote.com/burningman/phot ... 2970.shtml
- big red cat - http://www.loupiote.com/burningman/phot ... 3072.shtml
- yellow cat bus - http://www.misterw.com/MutantVehicles/CatBus02.html
- spectacle glasses cat - http://www.flickr.com/photos/flatmo/4971172395/
- evil cat - http://2.bp.blogspot.com/_4Cb_t7BLaIA/T ... rt_car.jpg

Also, if you know of any other camps or art cars, please let me know!

June

The Catbus is from a long time ago. By 2003 or 2004 it was pretty beat and had been orphaned by it's original builder. I'm pretty sure it's no longer with us.

Both of these were done by the same person, Doc who is usually with Gigsville. The second one is actually an evil white rabbit, but has been disassembled and remade into something new. I' sure you can contact Doc through Facebook about the Cheshire Cat https://www.facebook.com/docsloft. Google docsloft.

I seem to remember a different catbus too?

Thanks so much zerzura! Let me know if you have a picture or more info for the other cat bus.

And too bad about the yellow cat bus, it was pretty awesome.

Boo Boo Kitty (Big Red Cat) is done by Mikey, of Mikey's Hug Deli. I know it's been on the inner playa, maybe between the man and six. I don't know if that was a placed piece, or if it was guerilla. If it was placed, it might be on some list of art, and it might come with contact info. He, himself, is from Los Angeles, I believe. I don't have a last name.

You do realize that it's going to be difficult to round them all up.
