May Inspiration: Cadillac Ranch
"We don't care, we're driving Cadillacs in our dreams"
Along side Interstate 40 in Amarillo, TX, there lies an art installation.
Originally installed by the art group, Ant Farm, Cadillac Ranch has been become a notorious landmark along the historic Route 66. It exhibits a number of evolutions of the car line, most notably the birth and death of the defining feature of mid twentieth century Cadillacs: the tailfins. The Caddy models range from 1949 to 1963, and are half-buried nose-first in the ground, at an angle purportedly corresponding to that of the Great Pyramid of Giza in Egypt.
Now, it acts as a blank canvas that invites everyone's inner artist and rebel to come leave their mark on the world.
There are professions of love, poetry, initials...
...all brought together in a Northern Texas pasture.
