BMW Celebrates 40 Years of Its Art Car

Beginning with Calder’s 1975 BMW 3.0 CSL Art Car, the German automobile company has worked with renowned artists from Warhol to Koons on some of the most famed art pieces set on four wheels. This year marks the Art Car’s 40th anniversary, and BMW is celebrating with exhibitions around the world, with its first stop at Concorso d’Eleganza at Lake Como. Since the first Art Car, there have been 17 artists who have recreated their own iteration of a BMW car, including Warhol’s 1979 M1, Roy Lichtenstein’s 320, Koons’ M3 GT2 and Hockney’s 1995 850 CSi. Stay tuned as the “rolling sculptures” will be making their way to New York, Shanghai and Miami. For more information, check out BMW’s site here.
