For the fourth year, ADESA and our parent company, KAR Auction Services, served as presenting sponsors of Artomobilia, a celebration of automotive art and design in the Carmel Arts & Design District.

Recently, more than 400 incredible collector cars were on display in downtown Carmel, Indiana, not far from our corporate headquarters. The event drew a crowd of 15,000 art and automotive enthusiasts—and ADESA was in the center of all the action.

Employees volunteered throughout the day and made customers and other car lovers feel welcome in the hospitality suite. Additionally, several KAR employees entered their vehicles in the show.

Congratulations to the Carmel Artomobilia team on another fantastic event!

Andrea McCool, KAR manager of application development, and her husband, Chris, won first place in the “exotic” class with their 1998 Acura NSX Zanardi edition prototype.
