Queen for a Day! Texas Surrealist
Queen, that is. The high bidder will find her chariot awaiting. Since she will be in the Art Car Parade her chariot will be a 1972 Chevy “Bluebonnet” Pickup Truck. Artists Barbara Jones and Kelly Amen have designed this special Art Car to convey our Surrealist Queen and her entourage in the Art Car parade on April 18. Ceron and his friends at Urban Retreat will help out Queen prepare for her special day and will pamper her after the arduous journey down Main Street with a relaxing massage and pedicure. Our Queen will then relinquish her steed (the pickup is just a loaner, sorry).

All proceeds benefit Da Camera of Houston’s Surrealism concert series, including 10% of all purchases made at MD Modern on the day of the event. (Please refer to concert details)

Join Us for the latest of Da Camera of Houston’s nationally
acclaimed multi-media concert productions conceived and
directed by Artistic Director Sarah Rothenberg.
