Yugo Next Traveling Art Exhibit

The Yugo Next exhibit premiered at Grand Central Terminal in NYC and traveled around the nation and Canada drawing much attention appearing in over 400 newspapers, magazines and television spots. The exhibition featured various 3D transfigurations of the Yugo automobile, giving a useless object a new use. My three dimensional art was selected and depicted an actual working supermarket kiddie ride, “25¢ and Yu-Go”. The car’s rear end lifted up and down by a motor hidden in the base and ran on a timer every few minutes.
