Designing an Icon: Creativity and the American Automobile 

When: Tuesdays-Sundays. Continues through June 29 2012
Phone: 216-721-5722
Price: $8.50/$5
Turns out, those Mustangs, Camaros, and GTOs of yore were more than just gas-guzzling chick magnets. They were mega-horsepower works of art, arising from a designer’s imagination and powered by unbridled creativity. A new exhibit at the Western Reserve Historical Society’s History Center celebrates all that was beautiful in mid-century muscle car design. Designing an Icon: Creativity and the American Automobile showcases the rigorous creative process behind those rides, from preliminary illustrations to finished drawings. The collection of original artwork is on loan from the Louisville Visual Art Association in Kentucky. Among the highlights, visionary sketches from automotive historian and former head of General Motors Advanced Design Studio Bill Porter, who organized the exhibit. Admission is included in the regular toll charge of $8.50 for adults and $5 for students. Hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and noon to 5 on Sundays. The exhibit continues through June 29.
