This summer, the High Museum of Art presents a major exhibition of innovative automotive design that brings together 17 concept cars from across Europe and the U.S. On view from now through Sept. 7, 2014, “Dream Cars: Innovative Design, Visionary Ideas” features concept cars from the early 1930s to the 21st century that pushed the limits of imagination and foreshadowed the future of design.
The exhibition pairs conceptual drawings, patents and scale models with realized cars, demonstrating how their experimental designs advanced ideas of progress and changed the automobile from an object of function to a symbol of future possibilities.
Concept cars are a way for automakers, coachbuilders and independent designers to showcase and demonstrate innovative and progressive designs. Most concept cars are never intended for series production and are created as a way to explore ideas through styling and design aesthetics, as well as experiment with new technology.
My boys and I had a blast exploring this exhibit. Will actually be going back so the hubby can get up clos and personal. If you are in the Atlanta Metro area or are planning on visiting soon. Make sure you stop by the High Museum and see this awesome exhibit!
