5th Annual “ART-of-Motion” Exhibit by Automotive Rhythms: 2020 Washington Auto Show


The 2020 Washington Auto Show will once again showcase the 5th annual “ART-of-Motion” exhibit, an avant-garde design experience that benefits the culture and imagination of the DC metro area, as it hosts a tier-one show on the global auto show circuit.

In cooperation with Automotive Rhythms, a trendsetting urban automotive media group, the cutting-edge art car display will feature over 12,000-square-feet of experiential graphic backdrops consisting of painted autos in real-time, tuned cars, custom bikes, dynamic murals, local artist exhibits, and even a barber shop dubbed In The Cut.

A highly notable group of artists will showcase their talents in ART-of-Motion including nationally celebrated painter Shawn Mitchell Perkins aka “SP the Plug” who will bring his style of abstract, graffiti and realism to the exhibit using mostly oil and some acrylic paint. In addition, Juan “CRI” Pineda, DC-based visual artist, whose distinct style is also characterized as urban-contemporary/street art, will offer famed realism for his creative works.

Furthermore, artist Matt Long will showcase his acrylic paints and sharpie markers to create fluid forms with bright colors and an engaging sense of movement. Explosive sun rays radiate amongst aqua-inspired amoebic forms. While he draws inspiration from a diverse array of sources, many of Long’s paintings are a manifestation of his love for nature, surf, sun, and music.

“ART-of-Motion promises to thrill auto enthusiasts and art lovers alike,” said John Ourisman, Chairman of The Washington, DC Auto Show. “This partnership expands The Washington, DC Auto Show’s niche as a host of connective and innovative exhibits that, quite literally, put a new perspective on the auto industry.

ART-of-Motion will be located on the third floor in Ballroom B of the Walter E. Washington Convention Center at 801 Mount Vernon Place NW. From January 23rd to February 2nd designers will paint vehicles and murals live for showgoers to experience. Expect to see rides from Toyota, Kia, Hyundai, and Washington Area Honda Dealers alongside the aforementioned artists.

 “Undeniably an enticing attraction for an auto show, this spectacle will finally portray automobiles as we understand them: works of impressive beauty and innovative design,” said Kimatni D. Rawlins, president and CEO of Automotive Rhythms.

The Washington Auto Show has become a beloved annual tradition among Washingtonians who marvel at the growing display of mobility technologies, exotics, stars and cars, interactive displays, contests, and mascots. The show takes place in the Walter E. Washington Convention Center where more than 35 automakers will display over 700 vehicles by way of three levels of advanced exhibits.
