If you missed it previously, BMW is doing this as well in a matte-ish blue color while it looks like Mercedes is keeping in line with their usual silver/chrome look (it’s rare that I see a Mercedes that’s not silver).
The Seattle Art Museum unveils Brazilian born, São Paulo-based artist Sandra Cinto’s site-specific installation for the Olympic Sculpture Park’s PACCAR Pavilion.
