The Eighth Annual Art of the Car Concours® is scheduled from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday, June 22, 2014 on the Kansas City Art Institute campus. The event features more than 200 vintage, classic and special-interest vehicles, including cars, trucks, racing cars and motorcycles belonging to collectors from eight states.
The Art of the Car Concours, a benefit for the KCAI scholarship fund, is growing in popularity and stature among vintage and classic collectors. The Concours is unique for its size and scale in having no formal judging and no classes of vehicles. The intention is to provide a wide range of very high-quality, original, vintage vehicles in an eclectic, informal setting, without the pressure of traditional Concours events.
