The High Museum of Art in the Woodruff Arts Center in Atlanta is presenting “The Allure of the Automobile”, March 21st. thru June 20th., 2010. This exhibit is located just blocks from our Atlanta bed and breakfast inn.
Anyone who has dreamed of luxury automobiles with meticulous craftsmanship, including inlaid wood and state of the art engineering, must see this exhibit which is Lead Corporate sponsored by Porsche Cars North America.
Eighteen of the world’s rarest automobiles from 1930 thru 1965 will create a rolling sculpture showcasing masterpieces by Bugatti, Duesenberg, Jaguar, Mercedes-Benz, Porsche and Ferrari.
These state of the art automobiles were custom built for the privileged and are embodied with speed, style and elegance. They influenced the art, architecture, fashion and design of the United States and Europe from before World War II until the mid 1960’s. The exhibit highlights the advances in automobile engineering and design and the contrasts between European and American designs.
Featured cars have won world events such as the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance, broken records on racetracks and have been owned by car enthusiasts legends Clark Gable and Steve McQueen.
Be sure not to miss the 1933 Pierce Arrow, 1953 Porsche 550 and the 1959 Chevrolet Corvette as these are a few of our favorite cars. We look forward to seeing you at this Atlanta Event.
