Amarillo, Texas: Cadillac Ranch

Is it just a line of ten junker Cadillacs buried nose-down in a dusty farm field -- or is it art?

I have wanted to visit this for years and I finally did. It was so much fun making some legal graffiti. Other reviewers had talked about how much trash there was, and there was some, but it wasn't as bad as I thought. It was, however, FREEZING cold, and so windy -- but that didn't stop us from leaving our mark. I already want to go back and do it again! Don't forget to buy your paint to take with you. We got ours at the Home Depot just up the road.

This piece is excellent in person! So much fun to look at the layers of images and messages people have tagged. All positive too!

I liked what someone did with the used paint cans.

All we are saying, is Give Our Cadillac Ranch Spray Paint Art a Chance. (impromptu spray can display was temporary -- Joyce's pic is dated Jan. 2012)

It had rained all night before the day we visited. Walked through nearly ankle deep mud to reach the cars. Couldn't get close enough to touch them without needing a life jacket. Thousands of discarded spray paint cans laying all over the ground. Wish people would be more respectful and take their trash with them.
