Our very own Grand Central Station was one of the stops along BMW’s traveling Art Car exhibit. These four famous BMW’s were formerly used as blank canvases by world renowned artists, Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein, Frank Stella, and Robert Raushenberg. The BMW art car project began in 1975 when race car driver Hervé Poulain commisioned an American artist to paint his BMW, and today there are 16 vehicles in the BMW art car stable. These cars have graced some of the worlds most prestigious museums including the Louvre in Paris, and the Guggenheim in NY and Bilboa.
