Andy Warhol’s BMW-1 Art Car

For our newly-opened exhibition Warhol and Cars: American Icons, we’ve brought Andy’s famous BMW M-1 Art Car to The Warhol. In this blog video, I share some information about the automobile’s history, Warhol’s techniques painting it, and how we got it in to our lobby. Hear from Museum art handler Erin Beveridge about special considerations we had to make for this piece of art and see behind-the-scenes footage of the installation!
