Our friends over at the Vero Beach Museum of Art have a new exhibit on display featuring automobiles unique for their design and aerodynamic efficiencies. This exhibit, titled ‘Rolling Sculpture: Streamlined Art Deco Automobiles and Motorcycles’, is a joint project between the VBMA and former Executive Director of the Petersen Automotive Museum, Ken Gross, who served as the Guest Curator. Together, the pairing worked to highlight vehicles that prioritized aerodynamics and style over conforming to a certain standard.
‘Rolling Sculpture’ consists of two motorcycles and twenty cars, one of which is our very own 1938 Panhard Dynamic. Our Panhard, like many of the other pieces in the collection, was chosen for its art deco styling and intricate detailing.
The Vero Beach Museum of Art will be running this exhibit from January 28th to April 30th. This is truly an exhibit worth seeing in-person and gives visitors a unique perspective into automotive styling. The Tampa Bay Automobile Museum is honored to have a piece on display at the exhibit and appreciates the work put in to give the public a further glance into automobile history. The Vero Beach Museum of Art is open Monday-Saturday from 10 AM to 4:30 PM and Sunday from 1 to 4 PM. Tickets are just $12 for adults and free for children 17 years and under, so check out this exhibit while you can!
