Houston artcar artist Shelley Buschur was faced with this reality when her artcar was stolen recently. The Houston Chronicle ran an article about the theft. Reading the comments in the paper accompanying the article she had this to say. "Many of the comments were quite negative and even hateful toward artcars. it's sad! I suppose that I am insulated from such negativity by all of my awesome friends."
The article concedes that artcars are art even if they do seem flabbergasted that artcar culture is large and the Houston artcar parade is very popular. "Most have a love/hate experience (with artcars) with very few people in between. In that sense, they are very similar to any piece of art.
