WSJ: If Jackson Pollock Designed a Race Car, It Might Look Like This BMW

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
Following up the WSJ article from last week re: the Kith G82, here's a story about an artist who chose a BMW for the Grassroots Motorsports Challenge because she associated BMWs with their history of collaborating with artists for their "art cars".

Enjoy!

"Ms. Hempy: I have always been involved in dance and art. My mother is an artist. BMW has a history of collaborating with artists, creating art cars and racing them."

I'm assuming Jackson Pollock is mentioned due to his painting style which I don't see anywhere on this car.

What am i missing here?

Not sure why that important paragraph got left out, sorry.

"Ms. Hempy: I have always been involved in dance and art. My mother is an artist. BMW has a history of collaborating with artists, creating art cars and racing them. So that became the theme behind our car. I named the team Onofrio Pollock after two artists that inspire me. Judy Onofrio is an artist from where I am from in Minnesota, known for her giant sculptures. And Pollock, as in Jackson Pollock, an artist from New York from the first half of the 20th century. I used rocks from the shores of the Keweenaw Peninsula on the car, so it expresses a little bit of where Tucker and I now live."
