BMW Art Cars in New York City

Thursday, April 2nd, 2009

The BMW Art Cars have arrived in New York City and are on display in Grand Central Terminal’s Vanderbilt Hall through April 6th, 2009.  Walking into Vanderbilt Hall and seeing these cars is simply amazing.  Most impressive is the burst of color, particularly the Roy Lichtenstein 320i and the Andy Warhol M1.

The exhibit is five cars in total.  Included in the exhibit are the 1977 Group 5 Racing 320i painted by Roy Lichtenstein, the 1976 3.0 CSL painted by Frank Stella, the 1979 Group 4 Racing M1 painted by Andy Warhol, the 1986 635csi painted by R. Raushenberg, and the Z4 Roadster which was driven through wet paint on canvas-like surface to create a 30 by 40 foot.  The Z4 painting was by artist Robin Rhode. (more…)
