In Honkytonks & Horsepower: A Nashville Journey, the vibrant nightlife and car culture of Nashville come alive through the integration of photography and sculpture. The project captures iconic scenes of Nashville honky-tonks and everyday life in Music City USA, embracing the random incidents, neon signs, and buzzing social life that characterize this regional hub.

The artwork will employ digital photographs printed onto the hoods of classic American muscle cars such as the Firebird Trans Am, Camaro, Monte Carlo, and Mustang. The result is a visually striking series of fiberglass muscle car hoods, each hosting a unique image that encapsulates the spirit of Nashville.


The project is carefully designed to reflect the regional features and serve the specific architectural needs and character of BNA.


We will source fiberglass muscle car hoods from Harwood Fiberglass. The digital prints will be applied as vehicle wraps by Brand Imaging Group in Nashville. These hoods will be designed to mount flush against the wall, creating a dimensional installation that will captivate viewers and complement the existing Arts at the Airport public art collection.
