BMW Art Car
Spokane Festival of Speed

BMW Art Car

A part of our 2018 event is a special feature art car. We have partnered with the Spokane Art Community, local artist Kay O’Rourke, and Bring a Trailer to transform a BMW 840 into a beautiful work of art that a lucky bidder will get to drive away in and own as a unique masterpiece.

About the Artist

Kay O’Rourke is a well-know and accomplished artist living right here in Spokane. Kay is known to tell stories in her works of art, some of which are currently on display at the Art Spirit Gallery in Couer d’Alene, Idaho and in the past have been shown at the MAC (Spokane ‘s Museum of Arts and Culture), and over 50 exhibitions in the Northwest and throughout the U.S. She’s won “best of show” and other awards, including a local magazine’s “best local artist” award, voted on by residents.

We can’t wait to see the story she will tell on what is certainly a most unique canvas that will not only please the new owner each time he or she gets behind the wheel, but also those who get a glimpse of the car on the road.

The car will be unveiled prior to the Spokane Festival of Speed event and the Bring a Trailer auction for bidding will open on June 1.
