Grad Car 2002
|FTLComm - Tisdale - Sunday, June 9, 2002|
|Each year the tradition in many Saskatchewan communities
is for graduating students to prepare a special car for their last month of high
school. One has to think about this ritual as something between self propelled graffiti
and an art car. One way or another they are a social phenomena and each year the
car's have both the personality of those who made and the spirit of the year in which
they are produced.
This year there are three machines roaming the streets of town, a pink Ford, an aging Lincoln and this little hatchback.
I don't think one should read anything into the type of car or its decoration, they are subject to interpretation and probably an form of artistic expression but this year's cars are definitely step up from other years.
