BMW To showcase '79 Warhol M1 Art Car @ ARTCETERA 10/5/13-Boston



BMWGroup Press Release: BMWGroup Press Release

BMW of North America is pleased to feature its M1 Art Car by Andy Warhol at Bostonís annual ARTcetera fundraising event to support the AIDS Action Committee. Originally raced in Le Mans, Warholís hand painted BMW M1 is the 4th in the Art Car collection, and showcases the artistís unique depiction of speed. In his own words, Warhol described the piece as ďPortray[ing] speed pictorially. If a car is moving really quickly, all the lines and colors are blurred.Ē

The Art Car series began in 1975 when Le Mans driver Hervť Poulain commissioned American artist Alexander Calder to transform his racecar into a canvas. Since then, the collection has gone on to feature dynamic and impressive artists from around the world, including Frank Stella, Roy Lichtenstein, and Robert Rauschenberg. Warholís M1 Art Car has amassed an impressive resume from museums and galleries worldwide, and will serve as the perfect complement to the high caliber pieces up for auction at ARTcetera.

Additionally, the Massachusetts BMW centers are pleased to announce their first year of sponsorship for ARTcetera 2013. Established by Boston area artists as a response to the AIDS epidemic in the early 1980ís, ARTcetera has flourished into one of New Englandís premier art auctions, as well as an invaluable yearly fundraising event for AIDS Action. ARTcetera asks artists, both established and emerging, to submit pieces representative of their unique style across a wide range of mediums. In addition to the artwork, local and national sponsors help to ensure the annual continuation of the program. The event will be held on Saturday, October 5, 2013 at the Park Plaza Castle in Boston. Information for purchasing tickets or making donations can be found at www.aac.org.

ARTcetera 2013. Saturday, October 5.
Co-Chairs Barbara Lee and Bill Emery
with Rafanelli Events and MAX Ultimate Food
More than twenty-five years ago, a group of Boston-area artists came together in response to the AIDS crisis, which was claiming the lives of so many of their friends, fellow artists and colleagues. They responded by creating and organizing the first ARTcetera, a contemporary art auction held at Boston City Hall, to raise money for AIDS Action Committee.

Over the years, ARTcetera has grown to become one of New Englandís premier art auctions and an essential funding source for AIDS Action. And, while the AIDS epidemic looks nothing like it did 25 years ago, this epidemic and AIDS Actionís work are far from over.

Once again, the arts community and AIDS Action will celebrate our extraordinary partnership in this fight to stop the epidemic by preventing new infections and optimizing the health of those living with HIV.

Awesome. I encourage everyone to view one of the art cars in person if you ever get a chance. They really are a lot of fun to look at.

The Koons is nice, definitely!
I also like the Matazo Kayama 535 and the '92 BMW 3-Series Racing Prototype by Sandro Chia

the Koons M3 is certainly the best of the 'newer' art cars. The Lichtenstein is my favorite, and one of two I've actually seen in person.
