The BMW Art Cars tradition began in 1975 when French race car driver HervÃ© Poulain asked Alexander Calder to customize his BMW 3.0 CSL. For 33 years, BMW cars have been turned into rolling works of art by such influential artists as David Hockney, Roy Litchenstein, Frank Stella, Robert Rauschenberg and Andy Warhol.
These unique pieces, which have been shown in prominent museums around the world such as the Louvre Museum, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, and The Guggenheim Museum to name a few, are on permanent display at the BMW museum in Munich, Germany.
