Rather excited about the opening of The Allure of the Automobile later this month at the High Museum of Art in Atlanta. I’ve spent a great deal of time on the interactive site, watching the video and looking at highlights. Others with similar fascination for the golden age of automobiles, the breadth and intrigue of automobile design, and generally handsome cars should also be excited.
It’s all about speed, luxury, innovation, power, and a good number of other useful buzz words. Beautiful cars of all types are included in the exhibition – Corvettes, Jaguars, Packards – and the website already relays a good amount of personal stories submitted by visitors.
Having reviewed a number of car museums in the last year (especially those built by German brands) it’s quite lovely to see an art museum take a full survey of car design. Cincinnati Museum of Art, for example, regularly exhibits one car at a time. At High, you’ll be able to compare, contrast, and relish in all of automotive glory with aesthetics at the forefront.
The Allure of the Automobile runs from March 21 to June 20, 2010.
