The Art Car Wash is an interactive zone for art cars, art car drivers, and anyone who wants to buff their bumpers. All art cars on the playa will be invited to drive through the "wash" where other playa participants will be waiting to greet them, mock "wash" their cars, and groove to the sound of daytime disco.
The Art Car Wash consists of two rows of platforms, creating a lane which art car drivers can pass through, and filled with spinning fuzzy playa versions of the washers and wipers found in a typical car wash. Of course they are not actually washing cars, but participants are welcome to bring spray bottles to mist the passengers.
After passing through the wash, drivers can park and join the fun as the music plays throughout the day. Disorient gets the wash started every day, but all other playa participants are invited to play a role with towels, misters, or just themselves.

Disorient Presents: The Art Car Wash
The Art Car Wash is a sexy daytime disco and interactive zone for art cars, art car drivers, and anyone who enjoys getting their bumpers buffed.
Disorient invites all mutant vehicles to visit the Art Car Wash, where playa participants will be waiting to greet them, mock "wash" their cars, and groove to daytime DJ sets. Drive through the unique Evolvatron car wash lane, where spinning fuzzy playa versions of the washers and wipers found in a typical automated car wash will "wash" your vehicle. Sexy playa Car Washers will be ‘buffing’, ‘sudsing’, ‘rinsing’ and ‘waxing’ the car to maximum sexiness After passing through the wash, park your mutant vehicle and join in on the fun! The Art Car Wash will be operated daily by Disorient, but we invite all playa participants to visit Disorient throughout the week and lend a hand with towels, misters, buffy fuzzy things or just yourselves.... Hot wax job, anyone?
