"Pirate Ship"

Auctioned to Scott Galpin of Altoona, IA

Osceola Art Council


The Osceola Art Council is working with professional artists in music with Scott Lemon and visual artist Dennis Adams. This "retired school bus" is becoming a full-fledged "pirate ship" with sails and full regalia! The bus, once "warmly" known to Ragbrai participants as a beast of burden is taking on a new life. Pirates are coming to life among local youth as they plan their costuming and create pirate toting jingles.

Major sponsors include; Liz Kruidenier, Pioneer Hi-Bred Int'l, Principal Financial, Iowa Health System and the Greater Des Moines Community Foundation.

All five Art Cars and the partners Unlimited "promo art car" will be premiered at the Iowa State Fair Parade on Wednesday, August 8 @ 6 PM in downtown Des Moines near the State Capitol. Throughout the Iowa State Fair each car will be featured with morning performances from 9:30-11 AM at Expo Hill just beyond the Agricultural Building.

Join us Saturday, August 4 at 5:00 PM for the 360 Knoxville Nationals and Red Nose Night in celebration of Art Car and partners Unlimited. Several of the Art Cars will be premiered and promoted for the big Art Car Auction on Saturday, August 25th @ 5 PM at the Knoxville Championship Cup Series! All cars are available for pre-bidding on-line.
