Special Exhibit At Auburn Cord Duesenberg Automobile Museum

From August 2015 through May 2016, the Auburn Cord Duesenberg Automobile Museum is hosting an art exhibit in partnership with the League of Retired Automobile Designers. The exhibit features renderings of imagined, modern, and futuristic Auburn, Cord, and Duesenberg automobiles.

The League of Retired Automobile Designers is an informal group of mostly retired automobile designers that was founded in 1997, and conducted their first exhibition in 2006. Their design and styling ability has been honed by years of professional experience in the automotive industry. The designers featured in this exhibit have worked with large companies such as General Motors, Ford, and Chrysler, but they have also created renderings for a wide range of marques from Studebaker to Ferrari. The League of Retired Automobile Designers creates these renderings to exhibit their passion, enthusiasm, energy, and ambition to continue designing vehicles. They also wish to show that all automobiles are open pallets from which to create future designs.

The exhibit will be displayed in the Gallery of Classics from August 14, 2015 through Labor Day. The pieces will then be split between the Gallery of Classics and the Sandra and Gene Davenport Gallery of Fine Art and Archival Treasures until May 2016.
