Create at Home: Cardboard Cars

Since we can't welcome you to the museum for our monthly Second Saturdays Are for Families program, we invite you to create at home with us! Each week, we'll post a supply list, followed by a step-by-step activity guide to make an artistic creation with materials found in your own home.

Make your own cardboard "art car" inspired by Terry Allen's Road Angel at Laguna Gloria! Then, take your new creation for a spin and pull into your very own living room drive-in theater to watch your favorite movie in style!

Keep your eyes peeled on Friday, July 24 on our Facebook and Instagram for a step-by-step video tutorial to make your artistic creation. You can also visit for more information and past projects!

In the meantime, let the search for your materials begin!
