Most Wanted Fine Art (MWFA) and the Pittsburgh Art Car went on an epic cross-country tour May 5-25, 2015. We drove cross-country from Pittsburgh to LA with 4 artists in one truck towing a graffiti covered Pittsburgh Art Car. We made lots of stops along the way including Salt Lake City at the Urban Arts Gallery. Once in LA we flew in 3 other Pittsburgh Artists. The seven of us made art live at the prestigious Downtown LA Artwalk where we were at The Regent. The seven artists did our best clown car and drove the truck and trailer to San Francisco to celebrate the 10th Anniversary of Bay Area Maker Faire in San Mateo. At Maker Faire the Pittsburgh Art Car was smashed by Megabot a 15-foot tall robot that shoots canon style paint balls. Afterwards the original 4 headed back through Vegas, Denver, Kansas City, and St. Louis while the three artists flew back to Pittsburgh.
The Pittsburgh Art Car vs Megabot went over huge in the news. Here are some of the best articles. We were excited to be seen in:
Ate at The crescent moon. We had to have a Reuben since it was invented in Omaha. They were small by Pittsburgh standards but easy to eat and had just the right amount of everything. Perfect bites all the way through.

We arrived in the middle of the night and knew we had to eat BBQ. The only place open and thankfully with parking near by was Char-Bar. The food was not old fashioned in anyway but in the middle of a rainy night it was heaven.
Met with Dail Chambers from the Yeyo Arts Collective in St. Louis. The collective is celebrating 5 years helping the creative empowerment of women and families in Saint Louis MO. We brought back Dail’s art as well as a group show from Yeyo Arts to be shown during our June Unblurred Gallery opening.
