Pony Show

Mark Dean Veca's avatar Mark Dean Veca

Pony Show puts the Cult in car-culture. Mark Dean Veca's monumental mural installation is a shrine to the American Car, particularly those that rolled out of Detroit in the 1960's like Veca's first car the Ford Mustang (which sparked a new denomination, the Pony Car). Painted in Carbon Black, Candy Apple Red, and Glorious Gold on the exterior of a former auto repair shop, it's roll-up doors are emblazoned with the cruciform Mustang logo and framed by Pop-Baroque ornamentation-- a pyschedelic synthesis of Gianlorenzo Bernini and Rick Griffin. At once celebrating and criticizing our fanatical devotion to the automobile, Pony Show is a schismatic spectacle of epic proportions.
