hot times art cars!

For as long as anyone can remember there have been been Art Cars at Hot Times. Big ones, small ones, painted ones, ones with pieces and parts glued on them, cars with wings, Nationally famous cars and new cars in process. Hot Times has hosted artists from all over the world.  In 2017 internationally famous jingle truck painter Haider Ali first visited Hot Times and created the Heal Mobile for the Clintonville-Beechwold Community Resources Center and began cars for several local individuals! It is with great joy Hot Times has confirmed he will return to the Festival again this year! Several of the vehicles he has created will be on display and Haider will be creating a new vehicle at Hot Times!
