PRESENTING AND
SUPPORTING SPONSORS

WELCOME

Welcome our celebration of the 10th annual Carmel Artomobilia.  For 2017, our event will showcase more than 400 enthusiast and collector cars across more than 26 classes, including Super Car, Exotic, Classic, Sports car, European, Domestic, Vintage and Racers, attracting nearly 15,000 visitors from Indiana and the surrounding states.  The Artomobilia focuses on display and appreciation over competition and although each of the automobiles is truly magnificent, this event is not just about cars; it's about the art and automotive enthusiasts. 

Started by a small team of car collectors and enthusiasts, in 2008, the Carmel Artomobilia will celebrate it's 10th anniversary with a variety of special exhibits and opportunities for involvement.  We're looking forward to our best event yet.

artomobilia GEAR

Each year we feature a different shirt for the Artomobilia Organizing Committee.  For this year, we've extended that by creating an 2017 Event shirt.  The Finn/Ryan custom designed shirt features subtle details and excellent quality.  This year's shirts highlight Artomobilia branding details throughout, key event sponsors, and the original painting of the commissioned program and poster artwork of the 1969 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 by Marijan Pecar.  

The Committee shirts and Event shirts differ only in the color of the thread used to embroider sponsors logos on the sleeves.  Event shirts feature a "less-shouty" tone-on-tone thread for the sponsor logos displayed on each sleeve.

In addition, we've created a collection of cheap and cheerful t-shirts that are sure to delight.  Enjoy an every growing collection of designs in several styles for both men and women.  Check-out the Artomobilia Store at TeePublic.

PARTICIPATING SPONSORS

VISITORS

The Artomobilia embraces the essence of automotive art and design by uniquely combining the artwork of local galleries and artists, with the presentation of significant automobiles and their iconic design. To that end, the Selection Committee owners commissions a painting each year that features one of the most noteworthy cars presented against the canvas of the District. 

In 2016, we featured the work of Wyatt LeGrand, a member of the Hoosier Salon, on our event program, posters and participant materials.

Considered by many to be the highlight of the year’s events, Carmel’s Arts & Design District and the Carmel Artomobilia provides an unmatched environment for reaching one of the most desirable demographics in the state. And with nearly a half-mile of automobiles, art, retails, restaurants and vendors Arch-to-Arch, the Carmel Artomobilia promises a fun, yet sophisticated, atmosphere that features all that the District has to offer.

Each year, we try new things that add "texture" to the Artomobilia and highlight many of the assets of the Carmel and automotive hobby.  This year, we will feature a variety of artists, including musicians, painters and photographers, on the streets of the Arts & Design District.  Here are some of highlights that you'll see. 

Legendary, award-winning builder, Troy Trepanier, and his shop "Rad Rides by Troy" will join the Artomobilia Team as the Class Steward judging our RestoMod Class for 2017.  In addition to displaying some of his most amazing cars, Troy and team will provide an informal assessment and insight to each of the entrants in this special class.  See more...

Plein-Air Paint-out.  Artomobilia and the Hoosier Salon partnered to feature a plein-air paint-out and invited a collection of Indiana arts to paint in and around the cars of the Artomobilia.  The work of Wyatt LeGrand was selected for our annual commissioned painting to be used on our poster and program cover. See more...
