Cadillac Ranch, Amarillo

2.9
At the public art installation Cadillac Ranch, see the vision of three individuals who created a sculpture from Cadillac cars in the 1970s. Chip Lord, Hudson Marquez, and Doug Michels, members of the art group Ant Farm, repurposed old and unused Cadillacs into this installation based on their aesthetic interest in cars and their desire to find a new, unorthodox form of architectural work. The cars, which are tilted and partially buried into the ground, are now covered in graffiti and paint from visitors over the years. When you stop by this surreal site, a short walk from the highway, take photos or add your own art to the automobiles.

    Unless it's on your bucket list or if you happen to be driving by, don't bother going out of the way to go. It's dusty, windy, crowded, muddy and the place is littered with spray paint cans. People ar...  more »

Where to stay in Amarillo

Homestyle and boutique bed and breakfasts offer Texas hospitality near the downtown area.
