IMS Announces Centennial Era Artist

Thomas Kinkade (pictured) has been named the featured artist for the Indianapolis Motor Speedway Centennial Era. He will create a new Studio Masterwork and artwork that will become the cover for the collectible 2009 Indianapolis 500 Program. The images will be unveiled 27 February at the Centennial Era Gala.

And, yeah, this Indianapolis Observer wishes this post were a joke. Of all the artists in the world, Tony George went with the most cliche ridden illustrator of all time....

Please tell me this is a cruel, cruel joke. Kinkaid's "mall" sofa toppers don't even reach the realm of art. So disappointing with so many excellent art facilities and staff here.
