The Car Art Of Scott Jacobs…


If you love car and motorcycle art, plan to attend a very special event at Hilton/Asmus Contemporary on June 14th, 2013 from 5-8pm. Scheduled to take place at Rob Mancuso’s new McLaren showroom in downtown Chicago at the corner of Clark and Huron (77 W. Huron), the SRO crowd is signing up to kick tires and rub elbows with Scott Jacobs, renowned artist from Southern California.

Scott Jacobs has been friends with Arica Hilton for over 20 years and has enjoyed an amazing career as a photorealistic painter.  Mr. Jacobs gets around, appearing with his daughter on the Secret Millionaire , and is coming to Chicago to show his stuff.

He is best known for his images of Harley-Davidsons (he is the official painter for the brand) but also exotic cars.

But soon after marrying local artist and poet Arica, she convinced him to bring his marketing and people skills into the art world, together collaborating on what has become Hilton/Asmus Contemporary, where wives come to watch Arica paint, and husbands come to talk cars with Sven.

It’s great they are bringing Scott Jacobs to Chicago, showcasing the talents that have attracted a long, long list of admirers and clients, including Jay Leno, John Elway, Don King, Dan Ackroyd, Bon Jovi, Billy Joel…and the list goes on and on…

And yes, they are friends of mine, but I truly believe you won’t find a better gallery in town! Wisely mixing art, cars, and great conversation together is what life is all about.
