Toward the end of 2008, Robin Rhode created a painting the size of a football field. His brush in this case was a BMW Z4 Roadster. Rhode stood atop massive scaffolding directing the driver and remotely releasing paint under the tires to create this impressive work.
A thirty by forty foot section of the painting will be on display at Grand Central Terminal’s Vanderbilt Hall beginning March 25th. The process was captured at forty-five different camera angles and the resulting footage by filmmaker Jake Scott will also be screened.
Four “Art Cars” designed by Andy Warhol (above), Frank Stella, Roy Lichtenstein and Robert Rauschenberg (below) will also be on display at the same venue. The installation is free and open to the public. I’ve had the opportunity to see these cars in the past and strongly recommend the encounter.
