For some, cars are a simple means of conveyance, meant to ferry drivers and passengers from point A to point B. For others, an automobile can be a work of art, which is the idea behind the upcoming exhibition at the Atlanta High Museum of Art. Entitled “Dream Cars: Innovative Design, Visionary Ideas,” the show is co-curated by veteran automotive writer and historian Ken Gross, featuring 18 radical concept cars from the U.S. and Europe. The vehicles on display span the 1930s to the 2000s, including a 1935 Bugatti Type 57S Aerolithe with an elegant teardrop shape; a 1941 Chrysler Thunderbolt equipped with the first folding metal roof; and a 1955 Chrysler Ghia powered by a jet-inspired turbine engine. “Dream Cars” will open May 21st and runs until September 7th.
