Robyn Sanders is a muralist and art car painter based in Houston. She has been applying her art to the surface of automobiles for years and has painted over 20 art cars that have been featured in parades and exhibitions and even at the Peterson Automotive Museum in Los Angeles.
Her latest installation is located at George Bush Intercontinental Airport’s Terminal C near gate 14. “Parade of Art Cars” includes panels from a 1980 Chevrolet C10 pickup truck, a 1970 Morris Mini, a 1965 Ford Mustang convertible and a 1971 Porsche 911. Sanders celebrates her love of fine finish, combining it with Houston’s world famous “Art Car Parade”—which this year was renamed the “Houston Art Car Experience” to include a new format that allows for increased social distancing due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Each spring, several hundred decorated and festooned cars and other motorized and people-powered machines take to the streets of Houston in an event that expresses the creativity that helps define the city.
In the latest webisode of “Houston Airports Art,” Sanders gives passengers a sneak peak into how she marries classic cars and art.
