This somewhat bizarre sculpture was created by German artists, Julia Venske and Gregor Spänle. The mixed-media installation is comprised of around 16 tons of Italian Carrara marble and a 1980’s Fiat Panda.
In 2016, Midtown Alliance released a worldwide request to artists, to propose a new piece of public art that would replace the “Rockspinner,” a 22,000-pound granite boulder that sat on a rotating base. Following an art committee review, “Autoeater” won the selection.
