The group Artists of the Rustbelt is teaming up with a Mahoning Valley car club for its next show.
"Rust Belt Revival" will feature a hot rod car show along with an artists' market.
According to Youngstown artist Tony Nicholas, the group was looking for new and inventive ways to expand the audience for the art shows it has semi-annually at the B&O Station. Knowing the popularity of automobiles in the Mahoning Valley, Artists of the Rust Belt decided to partner with Roadhounds.
"The Youngstown area has a rich history of car culture celebrations including everything from open hood gatherings at the A&W Restaurants to the mega shows held at the legendary Idora Park." Nicholas said in the press release. "We'd like to bring home that spirit of intense automotive appreciation and the family outing fun this area is famous for."
Regional artists will be selling and displaying their work in addition to doing live demonstrations while an invitational display of classic hot rods is planned on the B&O grounds.
Other attractions include performances by The Tribe of Eos, a professional fusion belly dance group based out of the Calvin Center in Youngstown, and an appearance by the The Little Steel Derby Girls.
Refreshments will be available for purchase.
"Rust Belt Revival" runs from 1 to 7 p.m. Sunday at the B&O Station, 530 Mahoning Ave., Youngstown. Admission is $1. For more information, call 330-501-9812.
