Indianapolis artist Walter Knabe created the cover art for the Official Program, using a screenprint technique he learned during his five years of work at “The Factory” in New York with the legendary Andy Warhol. Knabe is the first Indiana-based artist to be named the Official Artist of the Indianapolis 500.

Knabe’s work has earned universal acclaim and appeal. Warhol and pop artist Keith Haring commissioned Knabe to create artwork for them, and he has designed custom work for Madonna and Michael Jordan, among other clients.

Walter Knabe Studios has been located in Indianapolis for the last 15 years and has become a trusted resource for high-profile collectors and interior designers. For more information on Knabe and his work, visit www.walterknabe.com/.

The 2010 Indianapolis 500 is scheduled for Sunday, May 30.
