Artist's Description

Cadillac Ranch outside Amarillo, Texas, USA

As a tribute to America’s best automobile, a collective of artists called Ant Farm decided to place 10 Cadillacs, ranging from a 1949 Club Coupe to a 1963 Sedan, in a wheat field located west of Amarillo, Texas. Mr. Stanley Marsh 3, a local helium tycoon, provided some place for the cars to rest. Ten big holes were dug and the cars were driven with their front end into them. Some people may think of this as sacrilege, as many of these cars are now much sought after collector’s items. However, in the seventies, when this piece of art was constructed, a 1959 Cadillac was not as hot as it is today. Had the cars not be used for the Ranch, they would most likely have ended up in an obscure junk yard. So, I think they serve a better purpose today by reminding both Americans and foreigners of this great American automotive heritage.
