Edited by Marianne Lamonaca
This exhibition catalogue examines the role of the automobile in shaping modern American culture. The exhibition showcased skillfully and elegantly rendered artworks for concept and production cars; sculpted car models; drawings for automobile showrooms, filling stations, bridges, and roadways; and illustrations for automobile advertisements. These original artworks, together with advertising brochures, auto industry periodicals, and other printed ephemera, provided audiences with the opportunity to explore how designers and manufacturers of automobiles influenced consumer perceptions. They also conveyed the social, political, and economic context of this volatile time period characterized by the Roaring Twenties and the Great Depression through the Second World War.
