American-Art-Deco-Savoy

Cartersville, GA - The Savoy Automobile Museum announced a new exhibit opening on April 5, 2022, American Art Deco. The American Art Deco exhibit showcases some of the incredible automobiles produced during the 1930s and early 1940s. As you walk through the gallery, take in the streamlined geometric shapes, the glamour, and luxury represented in this specially curated collection of vehicles. These works of art are an intentional modern departure from earlier inventions.

This exhibit is possible because of the museum's friends at the Richard H.
