Our prototype vehicles in Austin are sporting a new look! Six of our prototypes now feature Austin-themed "Paint the Town" artwork created by local artists such as Flo Swanson, a 94 year old artist who gave up driving over a decade ago, as well as Cathy Malloy and Anna Vaught, a mother-and-daughter pair who depicted iconic scenes such as the bats on the Congress Avenue bridge and kayakers on Lady Bird Lake. Learn more about the artwork at www.google.com/selfdrivingcar/paint.

Over the weekend, 94-year-old Florence Swanson took a ride in one of our Lexus self-driving cars. Florence gave up the keys to her own car more than a decade ago, but soon her artwork - of a man playing a guitar, inspired by her grandson - will appear on a prototype vehicle driving around Austin, TX. 

You can see Flo's artwork, as well as designs from the rest of our Paint The Town: Austin artists at www.google.com/selfdrivingcar/paint.

Bats, armadillos, music, Lady Bird Lake and more. We saw many iconic symbols of Austin represented in the submissions for Paint the Town: Austin! Take a look at the final selected artwork from Anna Vaught, Andy Nelson, Annette Neu, Catherine Malloy, Cathy Carr Haynes, Florence Swanson, Tracy Greene, Sondra Vine, Gwen Dennis, and Christiana Guzman at www.google.com/selfdrivingcar/paint/austin, and keep an eye out for their designs on our prototype vehicles early next year.

Thank you to everyone who submitted artwork, and everyone who came to our Paint the Town pop-up gallery at Big Medium’s East Austin Studio Tour over the weekend. It’s been such a pleasure getting to meet more Austinites!

Our prototype vehicles have gotten a new look thanks to our Paint the Town: Mountain View artists! It's been so exciting to have local artists leave their own mark on our vehicles. Here's a preview of some of the cars in our garage. We'll be posting more images of each car in the coming weeks, so keep an eye out for those! In the meantime, take a closer look at each piece of artwork at www.google.com/selfdrivingcar/paint/mountain-view.

We saw lots of awesome costumes this past Halloween weekend, but we've got a soft spot for this one from 9-year-old Mountain View resident, Téa.

We first met Téa a few months ago at a community event we hosted for Paint the Town: Mountain View. Inspired by the art contest, Téa got creative and transformed herself into a Google self-driving car with her grandfather's help. Here's what she calls "Happy Car", complete with working headlights, windshield wipers and even a sensor for the top of her head!  

We're getting ready to dress up our fleet of prototype vehicles too. The artwork selected from Paint the Town: Mountain View (www.google.com/selfdrivingcar/paint) will start to appear on our cars in the next few days. We can't wait to see how the cars look with art on them!

We launched Paint the Town: Mountain View to invite our neighbors to transform our prototype vehicles into public art. It’s been so exciting reviewing the submissions, and we want to say a huge thank you to everyone who joined our art experiment—we’re so honored that you participated!

We've selected ten pieces of art that will be placed on our prototype vehicles in Mountain View, along with honorable mentions. We’re excited to introduce everyone to our friends and neighbors: Kerrie Brandau, Inmaculada del Castillo Ditzel, Danielle Dufayet, Shalan Ertis, Jason Farwell, Hojin Lee, Hong Li, James Miles, Elise Politzer, Kate Thompson, Maya Babiszewska and Brian Corral

Over the weekend, we hosted an Open Garage for residents in Mountain View and all the selected artists joined us for rides in the car. They also looked at the first mock-ups of each piece of art on the prototype vehicle. Be sure to check out all the artwork, as well as links to everyone's personal websites, at www.google.com/selfdrivingcar/paint/mountain-view. And of course, keep an eye out for the art appearing on our cars in Mountain View later this year!

If you live in Austin, join Paint the Town: Austin and leave your own mark on our prototype vehicles. Details are at www.google.com/selfdrivingcar/paint. We’re excited to see what you dream up!
