Unveiling the Wonders of the World’s Largest Road Art Auction

Introducing the inaugural World’s Largest Road Art Auction, a live, in-person celebration of the finest Road Art pieces globally, set to be held at Mecum Auctions’ headquarters in Walworth, Wisconsin from June 20-25. This event is the latest addition to Mecum’s annual auction schedule and is anticipated to feature over 3,000 lots, ranging from vintage soda-pop signs, classic automobilia, and antique toys to pedal cars, kiddie rides, and jukeboxes.

The picturesque venue at the Wisconsin-Illinois border peaks in its natural splendor around the summer solstice, which this year conveniently falls right after the auction kickoff on June 21. For those who’ve yet to witness the midwestern United States at this time of year, the event offers a chance to experience the vibrancy of cities, suburbs, and the countryside in full bloom.

Road Art collecting offers an extensive array of genres, presenting a rich diversity of antique treasures to explore. Be it neon signs, framed ads, pedal cars, globes, or petrol-related collectibles, there’s an artifact to spark interest for every individual with a keen eye for intriguing antiquities. The joy collectors feel when discovering a long-lost porcelain sign or a 1950s gas pump from childhood memories is truly incomparable.

While nostalgia often drives the fascination for collecting such artifacts, there are countless motivations that draw collectors to engage in this pursuit. It’s not merely the pieces collected, but the sense of community fostered through shared passion, appreciation of history, and the common bonds formed among a diverse group of enthusiasts that makes Road Art a beloved hobby.

Whether your urge to collect is to honor personal history, appreciate the style and history of items, or revel in shared interests with fellow enthusiasts, Road Art offers an appeal for all. This year, everyone is invited to participate in the first-ever World’s Largest Road Art Auction, set to take place from June 20-25 at Mecum Auctions headquarters.
