    • This will be a great show because of the ambiance of the location--a building with huge murals done by Diego Rivera of the Ford factory. Onterestingly he followed those with some for the Rockefellers in NYC but those were painted over when it was charged Diego was a Communist.

    Detroit designers have always led the way in car design. The futuristic concept cars, roaring muscle cars, and sleek racers designed in and around the city shape our ideas of what a car can be. Working on paper, in clay, and in metal, their ideas drive American car culture and inform the way we get around every day.

    This exhibit organized by the Detroit Institute of Arts will highlight the artistry and influence of Detroit car designers working between 1950 and the present day. It will bring together 12 coupes and sedans designed across that 70-year period to highlight significant achievements in style and technology. The 12 cars include unique examples of experimental show cars created for display and iconic production models sold to the mass market. Design drawings and photographs will allow you to imagine the creative and innovative processes that bring a vehicle from the drawing board to the street.

    A selection of paintings and sculptures will highlight the conversation between the American art world and the car culture from the 1950s to the present day.
