Marco Island Center for the Arts showcases vintage cars

A 1952 Jaguar XK120 owned by Amil Handeguand was the winner of best in show.

The  Art Center’s eclectic and informal setting on Winterberry Drive hosted the 5th Annual “Cars as Art” event featuring pre-1978 unmodified antique and classic automobiles. The chair people for this annual fundraiser were Jack and Claire Keery, and Keith Pershing at Island Automotive. An enthusiastic attendee and supporter of the event was Hagerty Classic Car Insurance. Despite cloudy skies and a few raindrops towards the end of the event, hundreds of people were in attendance and found that there was something that caught their interest.

People’s choice third place was Adele Duba’s 1991 Figaro.
People’s choice first place went to a 1954 Rolls Royce Silver Wraith owned by Sal Campo.
Each of the automobiles was evaluated by qualified international art professionals, “abstractly surreal” Polish photographer Mila Bridger, and artist and wine consultant Orest Poluch from Guelph Ontario and Toronto.
People’s choice second place went to a 1906 Cadillac Model K owned by Wanda Coady.
