BMW art car at the Bechtler May 10-17

BMW’s first art car, designed in 1975 by Alexander Calder will be on display in the lobby May 10 thru May 17th of the fabulous Bechtler Museum of Modern Art. Perfect timing and gives the opening of the much anticipated NASCAR Hall of Fame opening on May 11, a definite Modern Charlotte twist. The NASCAR  Hall of Fame is only 2 blocks away- so go make a day of it and get a $2 discount at the museums.

This fab art car will then head to France and join in the deput of the 17th BMW Art Car. The newest Art Car will be done by prominent contemporary artist Jeff Koons and will race in the 24 hours of Le Mans. Cool.

While at the Bechtler, check out other works by Calder, possibly best known for his fabulous, colorful mobile sculptures.
