About the Art of the Car Concours

We regret to inform you that the 2016 Art of the Car Concours was the last one. All good things must come to an end, and we ended with the very best Concours year!

Thank you to the sponsors, underwriters, contributors, exhibitors, volunteers, and visitors that have made the Art of the Car Concours such a great success over the last 10 years. We are proud of the $1.1 million contribution we made to the Kansas City Institute Scholarship fund. We exposed Kansas City, and the Kansas City Art Institute and its beautiful grounds to visitors from 30 states that arrived to the view over 200 wonderful vintage cars, trucks, race cars, motorcycles, and pedal cars exhibited by collectors from 15 states. We educated everyone on what "art of the car" meant and began a significant change in the global Concours community. We developed a truly historic Meet the Legends program, a wonderful printed program with substantial subject matter articles, and one of the best Concours web sites in the world. We emphasis being certain that significant funds were always provided to KCAI. We de-emphasized strict judging and vehicle classes. Instead, we introduced a large number of awards built by individuals for the exhibitors, decided on a collegial basis, in an eclectic and informal setting with emphasis on People's Choices. Thank you for the contribution to the Art of Car Concours, to the Kansas City Art Institute, and the structure of wonderful vintage care being shown with pride to the public in the Midwest United States. We are maintaining this website as a digital history of the Concours.
