BMW Art Car Virtual Tour
BMW by Jeff Koons
Since 1975, BMW has had an Art Car program, where the company commissioned some of the top artists of the day to design paint jobs for the cars, which the factory then executed. There have been seventeen art cars created so far, and now the company has made a virtual tour of the facility in which they are stored so web users can 'visit' the facility and see the cars. The first was done by Alexander Calder, and the most recent, by Jeff Koons. The company has had the Art Cars as a collection traveling the world, being shown in many major museums.
