GOVERNOR MAGGIE HASSAN RECOGNIZES THE ARTS AT THE UNVEILING OF THE NEW HAMPSHIRE ARTS CAR, MADE IN FRANKLIN
Monday, September 14, at 1 p.m.
New Hampshire kicks off National Arts in Education Week with Governor Maggie Hassan, celebrating media artist Laurence Gartel and the reveal of the first-in-the- nation state art car, “New Hampshire Art Car, Made in Franklin.”
Mr. Gartel has been a practicing media artist for decades and is often referred to as the “father of digital art.” His work has graced magazine covers to high end automobiles. Earlier this year, Mr. Gartel created the official 57th Grammy Awards Artwork featuring art for music’s biggest night including a life-sized version of the iconic Grammy statuette wrapped in psychedelic imagery. His distinctive design work is also featured in this year’s Newport Jazz Festival. Mr. Gartel worked with Franklin High School students to create the state’s first Art Car. As seen in the example above, which shows a previous commissioned Art Car, Mr. Gartel's work is highly kinetic and colorful.
