The Art Car Museum presents The Rørpost Collaboration Project, an international artistic collaboration that serves as a pipeline for the flow of creative energy, the development of international friendships, and the celebration of the freedom of expression. The Danish word Rørpost refers to a pneumatic tube, a metaphor for sending the paper exchange and art ideas across the Atlantic. The verb Røre means to touch when translated to English.

Twenty-one artists from Houston were paired with 21 artists from Esbjerg, Denmark by matching artists’ names drawn from a hat. All 42 artists began a work on paper. These pieces were completed by the artist's partner. Each of the 42 artists also created an individual work in response to the collaboration experience. The response pieces are of any medium, any size, any style.

Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on display through October 30. The exhibition will also be shown at Houston's City Hall starting in January 2017.
