Thanks to the people behind Artscape's art cars

ArtscapeSegway Inc.

While I enjoyed Tim Smith's article about the Art Car Show, I was sorry not to see the names of some of the hard-working people who made it possible this year ("After two decades on the road, art cars still rev up the imagination at Artscape," July 19).

They include Jim Lucio, the event's outstanding visual arts coordinator, who races around all weekend doing a million jobs and sweating buckets.

There's also the curator of this year's show, Julia "Jewelz" Cody, who is internationally known in art car circles.

Finally, of course, there's Bill Gilmore, head of the Baltimore Office of Promotion and the Arts, whom you can see riding his Segway all around the festival to be sure everything is running smoothly.

Many thanks to them all.

    I remember vividly the Baltimore police officer who strode into my tent at Artscape, glanced at my art, and in very explicit terms told me how angry he was. My wife looked at me, wondering whether I was about to be arrested.
