Art cars that Ana did NOT see, but that her son loved!

The next volume in the chronicles of the woman from outer space who returned to Earth, Ana Darcy Méndez (and her family) is not yet out, but there's no reason not to share with visitors an art exhibition that Ana's son was fascinated by. His mother was far away at the time, but her husband and son happened to be in the Beeville, Texas area when a remarkable exhibition of art cars and other work by Mark Scrapdaddy Bradford of Houston, was featured at the Beeville Art Museum.

Most of the photos below are of Mr. Bradford's art cars, special constructions which actually can be driven, and have been driven, in art car parades. The silver colored cars are covered, or plated, with spoons, believe it or not, thousands of spoons, discarded by an airline and rescued and put to new use by Mr. Bradford! Ana's son has declared Mr. Bradford to be a genius.

If Ana had been able to attend, she most likely would have loved some of Mr. Bradford's smaller works, several of which are also shown below.

In fact, there's no one like Ana. Learn a bit more about her here!
