A focal point of the display will be a collection of artwork displaying the artistry and craftsmanship of more than 30 of the custom car world’s top artists.

“Each year, we like to raise the bar in our challenges to our painters,” said Cristina Fronzaglia-Murray, director, marketing communications, automotive refinish, PPG. “This year, our goal was to unleash their inner potential by inviting them to show what they always wanted to do with color and take their creativity to an entirely new level. What they come back with is always amazing and more than what we ask for. We have some of the most talented and creative masterminds using our products, and this year, they do not disappoint!”

The industry’s top names will be at the PPG booth for meet-and-greet sessions, mingling with visitors and signing autographs. Reality TV stars Mark Worman and Will Scott from Graveyard Carz will talk with fans and sign autographs on Wednesday, Nov. 6, from 11 a.m. to noon. Other popular personalities will greet fans during the show, including painters Charley Hutton and Bobby Alloway, as well as Tom and Mitch Kelly. Each year, the father-and-son team designs exclusive, one-of-a kind collectible posters for the show.

“SEMA is just a great stage to meet with old friends in the industry and make new ones,” said Hutton. “This year, I am super excited to get a chance to talk with the 2019 SEMA Battle of the Builders Young Gun Regional Winners alongside PPG. I love meeting and talking with other painters and craftsmen, especially the next generation of builders. They bring such a different perspective on painting, and I enjoy learning from them and hearing about their great ideas.”
