Hot Wheels cars, along with Gallery 1988 (G1988), celebrated its 40th anniversary by putting together a pop surrealist exhibit featuring a collection of artwork inspired by classic toy brands. More than 40 of the most famous pop surrealist artists from around the world made their contribution by creating customized 1:18 scale Hot Wheels Volkswagen buses die-cast for the exhibit. Each Volkswagen bus will be individually displayed and priced between $300 and $5,500. Along with the Hot Wheels inspired pieces, the exhibit also features canvas paintings and other artwork inspired by several generations of children's classic toys. The exhibit, which will feature more than 200 pieces of artwork, will benefit the Children Affected by AIDS Foundation.
