Mexican visual artist Betsabee Romero used cars to create installations for “A vuelta de rueda (Driving slowly),” an outdoor exhibition in Mexico City that has a decidedly green feel to it.

Romero’s installations in the Atrio de San Francisco, an open-air plaza in the heart of downtown, include an old VW combi covered in green plants and a car coated with traditional Mexican tiles.
