Art Car Parade


On Saturday, the annual Art Car Parade was held in the Heights area of Houston. Tom Jones, the curator of the Art Car Museum drove his 1982 Monte Carlo named Swamp Mutha which is the car in the picture. After locking the museum, he and some friends were sitting outside when he was struck and killed by a drunk driver. Another, more somber parade was held on Sunday when his friends showed up at the museum in their art cars to pay their respects to their friend.

Tom's death is a tragic loss to the world. Tom was a kind soul with a love for life and art. He will be missed by everyone who had the good fortune to know him. The art car parade has lost one of it's shining stars. His memory and the work he did will live forever.
