Cars vs. Art

Some say bringing a NASCAR museum to Charlotte would mean having to nix important arts projects. What do you think?

Jeff Towe
Arts projects my ass. We don't need another damn museum downtown, we need a racin' ... um ... museum.

Sheila Thompson
"Just combine the two and let local artists reproduce their work on the drivers' cars. I tell you, the Warholian implications of the Tide car have always fascinated me."

Mark Rivers
"You mean some people would rather watch ear-splitting-loud cars go around in circles than listen to Wagner? Hmm, come to think of it, I would, too."

Minnie Burleson
"Easy - the NASCAR museum can include a special building for art exhibits. Call it Imagin'At Shit!"
