Automotive design can be seen as an obscure form of artistic expression, merely take a look at some of the concept vehicles to have graced us over the past 50 years.
However, the “ART-of-Motion” exhibit at the Washington Auto Show has taken the idea a step futher. Corvette Online reported on the exhibit, which includes two C7 Corvettes done up in abstract art, and the cars have drawn quite the crowd.
The exhibit is in conjunction with Automotive Rhythms, an urban automotive media group. The group delivered two C7 Corvettes to Brett Golliff, Color and Trim Designer for Chevrolet Performance, Deadra Bell-Smith, Creative Sculpting Model Manager for Buick Design and Tyler Mars, Senior Digital Sculptor for Cadillac Exterior Design. Tom Peters, Chevrolet Performance Car Design Director, oversaw the project. The result is what you see here.
If you’re not digging the art, take solace in knowing the C7 Corvette was delivered with a minty-fresh, white vinyl wrap, meaning the art isn’t forever.
The results are certainly polarizing, but a commendable job for the right person to appreciate.
