Art Car of the Week: Further
An art car named Further
Further was a school bus purchased by American author Ken Kesey (One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest) in 1964 to carry his “Merry Band of Pranksters” cross-country, filming their counterculture adventures as they went. The original bus lasted till after a trip to the Woodstock Festival in 1969. Once its historic trips had come to an end it was parked on Kesey’s Farm in Oregon where it deteriorated over the decades. Kesey’s family is now in the process of restoring/raising money to restore the original bus.
