Art and the Automobile


April 2–5, 2020

Art and design—though distinct in purpose— share some common elements. In automobile design, for instance, line, texture, color, and space are all considered in sketches before clay sculptures are fashioned, presented, and critiqued. Models are then translated by engineers, who create precise specifications for what many car owners describe as works of art. To celebrate the decades-long passion of car enthusiasts, collectors, and lovers of design, the Museum will host a special exhibition featuring some of the most exquisite, vintage, and state-of-the-art cars in Montgomery and the surrounding areas.

The display of these alluring automobiles will be set against the spectacular backdrop of the John and Joyce Caddell Sculpture Garden, creating a perfect showroom for this four-day event.
