Exclamation BMW Art Cars – Come Home…


Achtung! – Kunst Autos…




BMW Welt & Museum
Am Olympiapark 1 & 2
München, Germany, 80809



http://www.bmw-welt.de/
http://www.bmw-museum.de/




Hi Guys,


This week I made a little homage to the BMW Museum in Munich. I wanted to see a little exhibit on the art cars. These cars were to be only on display for a few months (originally to end in Jan, 2011) – but now BMW has extended their stay until April 30th, 2011. I think all of you have seen my museum and welt pics before… but I thought I would also show you these wonderful art cars.

A side note: Jeff Koon’s art M3 LeMan’s car is back on display now. It wasn’t available to see when I visited the museum this week.

Enjoy,
Dackel




First some press “stock photos” from BMW AG on the outside of the Museum and Welt. These are BMW press photos. They give you a feel for what the Welt is all about – for those of you not fortunate to see this BMW temple first hand!









BMW HQ and Museum “bowl” in background.










Art Car Display inside the “bowl”…




Now onto my photos…


First, an interesting concept car at the base of the ramp that leads up to the Art Car “bowl”…




Here we go…
















Mmmm…




























Art car model…










Art model car…


And the real car...


























Andy’s brushes...










Art model…










































































What I WANT!








What urge will save us now that sex won’t...



















































going back down stairs…


The End.
Dackel





Here is my original photo tour of the Welt and Museum – incase you missed it.

Amazing, as usual.

Calder's 3.0 CSL is my favorite among the art cars.

great camera work.

That concept car in the first couple of shots is amazing. There are a couple of videos about that floating around.

I have more shots of that car. I am working on adding my photos to my old Welt and Museum writeup. I should have that finished in the next few days. I've got a ton of pics to edit & upload. lol


The Sandro Chia E36M was my favorite car there too.

Great pics! I wanted to make a trip there before I leave but I dont think thats going to happen.


EDIT: for those of you who live under a rock, here is Jeff Koon's art M3 that wasnt on display when he went thru there.

Excellent post David!

Agreed, Warhol's M1 is crap. I kind of like Rauschenberg's car. Also that slick little rockety-looking Z4 concept-type thing at the beginning. Thanks!

FYI... the Art Car's have been held over (yet) again. Me thinks they are a very popular exhibit.

ENJOY THE LARGEST EXHIBITION OF BMW ART CARS IN THE WORLD. 6TH OCTOBER 2010-30TH SEPTEMBER 2011 AT THE BMW MUSEUM IN MUNICH.

Gutten Nacht.
