High Museum Dream Cars
From May 21 through September 7, 2014 the High Museum of Art in Atlanta will be exhibiting 19 of the most creative and important concept car designs since the inception of the automobile itself. Below is an excerpt from the High Museum as well as images and descriptions of each of the cars involved in the exhibition. The High Museum dream cars exhibit is a true blend of art and functional car ingenuity.
The High Museum of Art will present a major exhibition of innovative automotive design that will bring together 17 concept cars from across Europe and the U.S. On view from May 21 through Sept. 7, 2014, “Dream Cars: Innovative Design, Visionary Ideas” will feature concept cars from the early 1930s to the 21st century that pushed the limits of imagination and foreshadowed the future of design.
The exhibition will pair 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.
