Harrod Blank created the world famous Camera Van, a 1972 Dodge van that is fitted with 2,500 cameras. The project begun in the fall of 1993 and was finished in 1995 after much trial and error designing and perfecting this creation. Most of the cameras don’t work but some do and actually take pictures of people as the Harrod drives. He created the car to be able to record peoples candid reactions to his Art Car. He has taken more than 5000 photos of people around the world. The word smile on the roof is created by in Kodak Instamatic Cameras. The Camera Van is currently at Art Car World Museum – Douglas, Arizona. For bookings, exhibitions, and licensing go to Art Car Agency. Harrod also published the book Art Cars and created two other art cars called Oh My God! a 1965 Volkswagen Beetle and Pico De Gallo 1963 Volkswagen Beetle. Thank you Harrod for your passion and dedication to this art form, you have inspired many of us to follow our dreams.
