Sculpture in Motion: The Art of Pre- and Post-War Automobiles

Saturday, November 18, 201710:00 am - 4:00 pm

Throughout history, cars have been a reflection of innovation…kinetic art, industrial design, and skillful engineering created decades of rolling sculpture that enabled early transportation, elegant travel, and racing history. Automotive design is in fact a reflection of our imagination and what the future may hold. Design is everywhere, but a car is personal. The rich history that accompanies the commission of some of the most extraordinary vintage vehicles in our history is an inspiring message. Innovation is a theme throughout this exhibition, confirming that art, science, and technology go hand in hand. During the day visitors of all ages will have the opportunity to experience the history and design of 12 -14 rare, one of a kind, classic pre- and post- war automobiles in this “dream car” exhibition.

The Gardens will be transformed into a unique “showroom” for a special cocktail reception and more intimate viewing of the cars. Guests will “judge” the cars for originality, elegance, and Best in Show.

John Barnes, founder of Cavallino Magazine and The Cavallino Classic, is the guest curator for the exhibit and will host tours and special presentations about the automobiles.
