Art Car Artists sue Nevada farmer over Burning of La Contessa

La Contessa RIP


photo by: David Madison

The most wonderful art car I have ever seen. Given the size, the details were just amazing. I was sad when Burning Man banned it (I understood why, too many people in the way), and even sadder when I heard it was intentionally burned to the ground!

The 40-foot replica of the 16th century vessel was owned by artist Simon Cheffins and mechanical engineer Gregory Jones of Extra Action Marching Band fame.

Their suit filed Monday in U.S. District Court in Reno seeks damages from Michael Stewart, owner of Empire and Orient farms in Gerlach, under The Visual Artists Rights Act of 1990.
