[PICS] C7 Corvette Stingray Serves as a Canvas in ART-of-Motion Exhibit


Corvettes have always been described as a work of art by enthusiasts.

This C7 Stingray definitely lives up to the title with its psychedelic stripes of yellow, orange, red, and purple, but would you do this to your own car?

Fortunately, the results of the unique paint job can always be reversed as the subject Corvette was first wrapped in white vinyl.

The Stingray is one of the exhibits at the Washington Auto Show, being held all this month at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in our nation’s capital.

The Corvette is part of the first “ART-of-Motion” exhibit that includes 6,000 square feet of graphic arts and murals, with 10 manufacturers submitting cars. The show is in collaboration with Automotive Rhythms, an urban automotive media group.

Producing the one-of-a-kind Corvette were some big-time folks from General Motors, including Tom Peters, Chevrolet Performance Car Design Director, who oversaw the project and provided artistic direction. Assisting Peters were 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.

Golliff described the final result as “a very graphic and deep expression of color and design.”

Likewise, John O’Donnell, president of the Washington Area New Automobile Dealers Association, which produces the Washington Auto Show, said of the entire show, “ART-of-Motion promises to thrill auto enthusiasts and art lovers alike.”

How about it, folks? Do you find the end result thrilling? Let us know.
