"It's Personal"

Lee Lamberts's avatar Lee Lamberts

Since ArtPrize ended last year, I have been taking photos of Michigan-only personalized license plates, the so-called "Vanity Plates," that I see wherever — in mall parking lots, parking lots where I work, parking ramps at airports, heck, I've even had my wife take photos of the license plates while we were driving down the street. I will be displaying photographic reprints of close to 400 personalized license plates I have seen all around the state.The images will be displayed inside an outline of the state of Michigan and will be titled “It’s Personal,” showing the many personalities and/or quirks of drivers in our state. The fun part of this display will be attempting to figure out what message the driver is trying to get across. Some are simply a person’s initials. Others convey a theme or some type of message. Mine is “CSI FAN,” a tribute to my favorite TV show. Is your's part of my display? Take a look. I hope it is.
