Countdown to Parade Day:

Corporate Entries


Noble Energy + Energy Institute High School Art Car in the 2017 Houston Art Car Parade

Noble Energy worked with artists Matt Fries & Julian Luna, and the students of the Energy Institute High School to create their art car, which was featured during the 2017 Super Bowl in Houston, and ran in the 2017 Houston Art Car Parade, the 2017 Pride Parade, and has been featured many additional times in media and events.


Creating an art car for your business or corporate is an amazing way to show community involvement, collaboration, dedication to a cause, and expose your brand to new audiences.

The Orange Show Center for Visionary Art works closely with our corporate partners to assist in creating, documenting and promoting art car builds - whether it is is sponsoring a local school, or working directly with a professional artist to produce your vision.

Corporate entries start at $5,000.

The Ace Hardware Art Car featured in the 2017 Houston Art Car Parade

Ace Hardware, now a multi-year partner, wanted to create an interactive art experience through their art car, so during the events leading up to the Houston Art Car Parade, as well as during the starting line party at the Houston Art Car Parade, anyone is invited to come and create their own art on the pickup truck.
