High Performance Automobiles

From the ALLURE OF THE AUTOMOBILE - Exhibition at the Portland Art Museum 6/11/11 -- 7/11/11. A record of a my visit on Sunday 6/12 to one of Portland's many downtown events. The Allure of the Automobile showcases 16 of the world's most luxurious, rare, and brilliantly conceived automobiles designed between 1930 and the mid-1960s. From the avant garde 1937 Hispano-Suiza owned by French apéritif baron André Dubonnet to the ultra-cool convertible 1957 Jaguar XK-SS Roadster once owned by Hollywood legend Steve McQueen, the exhibition traces the evolution of the motorcar, showcasing developments in automotive design and engineering. Organized by the High Museum of Art in Atlanta, the exhibition is guest curated by Ken Gross, the former director of the Petersen Automotive Museum in Los Angeles. As it runs through September 11, I hope to be back again with my "video brain" in gear. I highly recommend this exhibit. Here's a link for more info:
