I’m a huge fan of WFUV out of Fordham University. When I’m not listening to audiobooks, FUV is the #1 pre-set on my car radio. Thanks to my commute, I usually log about 2 hours a day in the car. The station’s offshoot, the Alternate Side provided the soundtrack for TRESPASS: An Evening of Art Crime benefiting the Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum in Ridgefield, Connecticut. Lately I’ve been photographing mostly food, so when I first heard about the event, I knew this was just the thing to mix it up. It’s not every day you get to watch artists like artists Michael De Feo, Kysa Johnson and Erik Parker temporarily transform a BMW.
You have to wonder… exactly how do you ‘tag’ a car in a dealership showroom? The answer is in the artist’s hands. Dry erase marker.
We heard the three cars were to be detailed *immediately* following the event. It’s exciting to watch an unusual transformation, but I bet BMW of Ridgefield was anxious to get these expensive canvases back to a blank slate.
