Video: Making a BMW Art Car for Less Than $2000

https://www.youtube.com/embed/XS-JDNr9kvs

Inspired by artists Judy Onofrio and Jackson Pollack, Abby Hempy and her team created a budget homage of the iconic BMW art cars out of cast-off 528i for the $2000 Challenge.

After the Challenge, the team’s efforts were featured in the Wall Street Journal. The BMW was later auctioned off on eBay Motors for $1250, with half of the profit donated to the Superior School of Dance. Learn more about the $2000 Challenge at 2000challenge.com Presented by CRC Industries.
