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

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.

During the day visitors of all ages will have the opportunity to experience the history and design of twelve 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.
