The Petersen Automotive Museum is presenting an entire exhibition of arguably the most unusual of those mediums: cars. Beginning December 17, The Unconventional Canvases of Keith Haring will put five cars on display that Haring had painted or marked up in his signature style.

Haring decorated all of the vehicles on display between 1983 and 1990, including four cars—1963 Buick Special, 1971 Land Rover Series III, 1990 BMW Z1 and a 1962 SCAF/Mortarini Mini Ferrari 330 P2 Motorized Child’s Automobile—and one motorcycle—1987 Honda CBR1000F Hurricane.
