THROUGH THE LENS – CARS DEFINED BY AN AMERICAN CENTURY
NEW exhibit opens to the public Friday, November 9

The Through the Lens: Cars Defined by an American Century exhibit is based on the idea that American history and the automobile are inextricably intertwined thus making cars the perfect lens to entertain and educate ACM guests.

Visitors will be encouraged to consider one vehicle from each decade that defines the history and culture of that period, in addition, visitors will be asked to speculate which car will best exemplify the current decade. In some cases, the cars on display may not have been the most popular or a commercial success, just indicative of the time.

ACM will “make a case” for each vehicle shown but, ultimately, each visitor will decide, or “vote” for another. If there is an overwhelming response toward a different vehicle than the one on display, the current vehicle will be replaced with the alternative.

Exclusive Member Preview – Thursday, November 8

All ACM members are invited to an exclusive member preview of our newest exhibit, Cars Defined by an American Century. Not a member? Join today! Enjoy light hors d’oeuvres and the unveiling of a vehicle from each decade 1910 – 2010. Silver Key Driver Members and above may bring up to two guests.
