Cadillac Ranch

Near Amarillo, TX

 

Cadillac Ranch, located in a pasture west of Amarillo on Interstate 40 (35°11′14″N 101°59′13.4″W), is an ever-changing, open-air, public piece of artwork consisting of 10 vintage Cadillacs that have been half-buried nose-first at corresponding angles to highlight the rise and fall of the Cadillac tail fin design. Visible from the highway, this art car extravaganza was created in 1974 by a group of artists known as The Ant Farm in collaboration with local eccentric millionaire Stanley Marsh 3 and has served as a well-known pop culture reference in numerous songs, videos, and movies.

 

Visitors are welcome to participate in this always-open art installation and are encouraged to bring their own cans of spray paint to write graffiti such as a name, message, or design. The vehicles are continually changing in appearance and are occasionally repainted a solid color thus periodically providing a fresh canvas.
