mno-buttonaha1Jan Elftmann’s penchant for collecting objects shines through in all of her work. She makes art approachable for the every day person in her playful assemblage work and eye-catching art cars.

Elftmann helped found the Minnesota ArtCar Parade after she completed her first art car-a pick up truck covered with 10,000 wine bottle corks. She’s currently working on her third art car.
