what is the allure of the automobile?
The name of the current exhibit at the Portland Art Museum.
In October when Ben and I became members of the Portland Art Museum, one of the exhibits that influenced our membership decision was their upcoming exhibit Allure of the Automobile. The exhibit promised 16 of the most luxurious, rare and brilliantly conceived automobiles and would be the first exhibition to consider the stylistic development of cars in the context of prominent design movements such as Art Moderne and Postwar Modernity.
The exhibit finally opened and we love it! I think the cars and beautiful and amazing and Ben loves all of the "workings" of the cars. It's a great exhibit for us... and next week my nephews are coming to visit to take advantage of the exhibit as well. We can't wait!
