Playa Works Art Cars for Mad Max

Blood and burned-out cars. That’s what any mention of Mad Max brings to my mind thanks to the indelible bleakness of the Mel Gibson-era films. Now that there’s a shiny reboot with outsize action sequences to match, I don’t see that changing. Although, there is something about the artfulness of the survivalist rigs cobbled together with scrap metal and bits of flash and function like pack-rat nests on furious wheels. In that vein, local arts group Playaworks organized a pre-party and caravan of art cars to go from its warehouse to the Palms’ Brenden Theatres to see Mad Max: Fury Road. The plan was to valet “any and all street-legal mutant vehicles,” and to dress accordingly. If there are movie theaters in the post-apocalyptic world, the crowd should definitely roll with fishnets and finger guns.
