Cadillac Ranch, Amarillo, TX

4 of 29

This graveyard of 10
Cadillacs dating from 1949 to 1963 documents the glory years of the
ostentatious tail fin. Constructed in 1974 by three artists, Hudson Marquez,
Doug Michels, and Chip Lord (collectively known as Ant Farm), the prescient
installation also manages to allude to the rise and fall of the American
automotive industry. Located on I-40, outside of Amarillo, TX, Cadillac Ranch
is a wholly interactive exhibit. Visitors are encouraged to bring paint,
markers, or whatever other medium they like to add to the graffiti and be part
of the ongoing conversation. —Adam McCulloch
