If you’ll recall, last week we reported on a 2014 Corvette Stingray coupe that was to be hand-painted at a gala, essentially turning the vinyl-wrapped car into a rolling piece of art to benefit the Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit.
We finally have a snapshot of the finished piece, and boy, does it look fantastic.
A complex system of intersecting orange-red lines punctuate an otherwise very subdued, blue and purple palette on this 2014 Corvette Stingray, which forms a shadowy, ethereal backdrop. There are some ethereal orange-yellow highlights toward the rear quarter that recall a saturated sunrise.
All considered, the palette is gorgeous, and the design is exciting while not overly defined or distracting; it beautifully accents the Stingray without drowning it out or detracting from it.
We don’t have any information regarding how much the gala managed to raise to benefit the MOCAD, what with its $1,500 ticket price. But we do at least know that the hand-painting was a success. Hopefully the car remains on display as-is for some time to come.
Update: the Gala was reportedly MOCAD’s most successful ever, raising over $400,000. H/T to JRT!
